Hey Jeff. I think the cheese slid off Mother Natures cracker! +50 degs with torrential rain, thunder & lightning yesterday. 8O We'll see what kind of damage she caused to the boat shed this morning. I suspect part of the shed is flooded out.

Stay well and happy!
Yours Aye! Rick

Should be a lay in panel that makes it a solid berth. All the sailboats are like that so I would assume he’d just to it that way? Is it not in the plan?
My already completed 'Lil Bit'. A Martens Goosen V12 set up to sail me to the fishing holes.
Currently working on making a Helms 24 our coastal cruiser.

If there was a lay in panel it wasn't part of the kit. I'm not sure it is in the plans but I'll check. As it is it would be a nice setup for a solo sailor. We'll figure out a solution. Standby.

Lori and I sat down this week with Rene from "My Dream Boat Project" to discuss the building of our TW28. It was fun.

Some trimming and sanding and lots of thickened epoxy and it'll be golden. :lol:
