Fellow Pocketship Builders,

I thought I would share a mod I just fabricated on my PS to increase cabin storage for small items, like your radio, water bottle, snacks or a torn tee-shirt. See link below if interested: ... k-welding/

G’Day Brent,
This is a good idea mate, I did this on my previous trailer sailer a Mach 28 and the space provided was big enough to store the toilet paper, chemicals and a first aid kit, mind you this was a slightly bigger yacht but good use of space, well done. I will consider doing the same when I get to that stage.
Been following your Blog and your build is coming along well.

Cheers Terry

Hey Brent and Gents

I like that mod a lot! Timely also as that's exactly what I'm working on now.

Hey, any concern about the loss of floatation?? Prob not - but 'Murphy's Law'
has kicked me in the nose more than once when cruising (understated!)

Good luck; best wishes
