    Believe me I would love to but from my research it sounds like it wouldn't work due to lack of adhesion to the foam...

      What will you be doing about the tank to bilge drain? How was yours designed from the factory? Did you have a drain?
      I am not sure what you mean. From the fuel tank compartment? Half circles are cut out at the bottom of the bulkheads.

        Yes. It has been a debate on a couple of posts if the tank compartment is supposed to drain into the bilge area.

          I understand your question now. From the factory it does. Not sure how else you would direct water from the entire boat to the bilge area without going through the tank compartment unless you had a sealed "pipe" running from in front of the front bulkhead straight back to the bilge. But then any water getting in the fuel compartment has no where to go.I plan to have a hatch there which didn't exist before so I am sure water will get in. I guess you would need a separate bilge in the fuel area with a skimmer....

            I believe the idea is the foam is only for making/shaping your glass to. Add'l glass is now your strength, not the foam.
            There are boat structures with just cardboard shapes that are fiber glassed over.
            Also boat structures with hollow stringers. The add'l glass is the strength.
            Most times I'm wrong, Most times I stand corrected..But...Sometimes I'm right.
