It's Only A Model

Somewhere between the reality that is Betsy and the fantasy that is my imagination lies a whole world of cardboard cut-out compromise...


...it's only a model of course, a template for the plywood reality that is to follow. The foam and fibreglass panels I have laminated will be used elsewhere to form the stowage and foam filled buoyancy compartments for example.

With a bit of luck and good judgement, the existing companionway will be just big enough to get the bulkhead in to the boat as one whole piece, before I get too carried away with fitting the new hatch.

There will be just enough room between the port and starboard stowage compartments to allow for a hatch through to the forepeak, some of which will be filled with EPS foam for buoyancy should the worst happen?!
