Getting underfoot (and under floor)

With the way I designed the under cockpit storage area for Flirt’s Water bladder I found that my work inadvertently opened up another small stowage area for items that could be handy to have in the cockpit. Between the bulkhead I added to seperate the lazerette and the bulkhead protecting the water tank area is a space the width of the cockpit and about 18 inches long. While not very deep, it is more than good enough to stow anything I need in a hurry.

Once the sole of the cockpit is put back in, this area will be mostly sealed off except for a pair of deck plates. A quick turn of them and anything I have stowed inside will be more or less accessible (I may have to reach in and search for it though)

Flirt is slowly coming together, with winter bearing down (It is December 1st after all) I am in a small rush to get the cockpit sealed up before it gets too cold for the epoxy to properly harden.

A long time sailor who has been away from the water for too long, I am working hard to bring an old and abused boat back to life. When not working on my boat, I can often be found working as a Stage Hand in Atlantic City or just out and about on my Mountain Bike. I really come off as a quiet and boring person when people first meet me.
