Re: Flats Flyer Build in S.C.

Go to page 10 of my build...
I have a few pictures...it drains to the bottom keel of the boat..
I put a bilge pump on each side of the keel...one pump is automatic...the other pump is manual....
Hope this helps...

Re: Flats Flyer Build in S.C.

I was going to put a live well in...the space were my transom speakers are at...and I still can...
But I had the same thought as you...it is done in boats all the time....I just could not drill any more holes in my Flyer...
I use a very nice cooler ...and my big one is a barrel cut in half..

Re: Flats Flyer Build in S.C.

Not shure where you live...
But my recommendation is you want a hatch that's very low profile the lower the better that way as you're walking across your decks and different places they don't become a tripping hazard

Re: Cutting BarrelBack frames

You...will eventually want to seal up these frames...
So being planed or sanded well ...will be a good idea...
Just my 2 cents...

Re: Hull design question

All this is from memory. ..do 50/50 chance of being right You should have been able to put a center line on your keel... And bevel ..both sides of that line down ...so it follows the lines of the boat... If your keel is lower...you may have to build it up... To bevel it back down. ... Will look back...
