Its dopey question time, again!

Postby ScrumpyJack » Tue Oct 06, 2009 6:54 am

So whats new?
Right I have battled with the free flood holes on my Sheerline type VII and got them finished. I think I have a design for my ballast tank, just need to do some pre fit trials with tank pump(s) and valves etc to see how it performs. So now a dopey question sprang to mind. The Sheerline type VII like a lot of boats comes in two halves, hull and casing, so how have you sub build old timers managed to attach hull to casing simplistically so one get to the guts of the boat as required.
Yes OK i could go for thru boat bolts, bit Heath Robinson so.................
Any advice reccommendation(s) would be appreciated TA
We used to use quarter turn screw locking screw thingys on cabinets etc that might do but they would need secreting in the deck somehow.

A lot of people use the deck bollards to disguise holding screws.

Yup, deck bollards, deck gun, sound head, capstan, fairleads, stern light........all good ways. :)

You don't need a whole lot to keep the casing in place, even with the assumption that some floatation foam will be up inside the casing.
