Fitted the wall panels, cut the access hatch for the fuel filler hose on the starboard side and cut the access hatch for the water filler hose. I also finished the last of the VJ ceiling boards.

Matt,
Tell me it isn't so .....
Looks like the fuel filler port is actually inside the boat.
Is this opening going to be closed off or ? ......

Haha I was waiting for it haha.

No mate that's just where the filler hoses comes up through from the tanks. The filler necks will be on the gunwale outside. The water is on the Portside and the Diesel is on the Starboard side

Smart putting the water and diesel fills opposite sides, could mean you need to watch weight balancing, but you`ll have thought of that. Are the fillers to be above deck level, unlike mine but like later IGs, a set up I envy?

So ya set me up Matt ... and I fell hard.

Re Bruce's coment is there an equal size fuel tank on either side of da boat? I have control over listing from fuel burn and water consumption but if/when the water tanks (in the Laz) get low I'll be stern high. I never want to be in big stern seas w a light stern. Ideally our consumable fluids should be centered amidships in the hull so trim is a given all the time. Very few boats will be ideal I suspect.

When you're done and have used the boat for awhile you may have some interesting comments about design. That is basically what you've done .. design a boat .. Oh and build it too. I did that once in the 70's.

The fish odds are better in here than in than in the ocean haha.

It's all good tho my friend. It serves to show me that you're interested in the success of this build etc

Both tanks run lengthwise across the boat Port to Starboard. The tanks are cantered on the keel.

It's hard to describe but there are pics back in the posts after I flipped her back over.

Looks like Matt has that covered anyway Eric, but taking up your point re the possibility of upsetting trim by unequal consumption, it appears one situation where my old Lotus has that solved nicely. Fuel and water tanks are duplicated each side and equally sized, but draw down equally merely by each being linked to the other via feeds between them, which also means you can fill from just one side and it flows across and equalises quickly, and is always in trim, no mater how much is used. Also, as the water tanks are inboard and between the fuel tanks in the ford lazaret, it does not affect fore and aft trim either. I guess something had to be right on my boat.

Peter,
I've always liked CGBs and now I like them more.
How big is the equalizing hose or pipe between the tanks? Where does it attach (high or low). Wouldn't equalize if it was high and would take forever to fill one tank if it was small.

Just an FYI


I have a co-op feed 1/4" i.d. copper hose with shut off valve on top end of two 100 gallon side tanks. It's internal stems reach near each tank's bottom. I find that if valve is left open the tanks drain at considerably different rates with the twins running... yet when valve is in off position they drain at similar rates. With valve off, only conflict of fuel amount drawn out of either tank is that the gen set draws off starboard only. My unique, accurate fuel measuring technique keeps me abreast of level in each tank. With the minimal amount of fuel used by gen set I find little need for concern on the trim. At fill up all becomes good again! Except thickness of my wallet - LOL!

Art,
I have 100 gal on each side too. I can adjust valves so they are connected and should equalize but never do. I'm rather list sensitive and when I notice a slight list I change tank draw. We burn so little fuel I don't switch tanks all that often.

I have the feeling that if the boat lists for other reasons more fuel will transfer to the low side. That's not appealing to me and I like to be in control.

The console has now been leather wrapped. I have some gloss black facia panels to fit then the gauges and switches can go in
