View Full Version : Looking for a piece
06-22-2008, 09:03 PM
I am looking for the plactic piece that seperates the engine compartment and the back ballast tank. I am thinking of making a removable shelf or a hinged shelf in the rear compartment to cover the sacks. I store jackets, ropes, and sometimes the wakeskate. This does not fit in the racks. I still want to store these items in the back area without hindering the inflation of the sacks.

You can get a sheet of vinyl from most building supply stores I think that would work for what your wanting. I put plastic tanks in my boat where the ballast bags once were. I had them custom made they reach from the back of the boat to under the back corner seat to where my cooler is, They also hold more water which = more weight. Only 14" in height in storage compartment then a little lower at the front so they would slide under the seat. $125 per tank

Who made these for you? Do you have pictures?
Boatersworld has some marine plastics. They come in different thicknesses and sizes. I used one to make the table that also serves as a bench between the V berth in the big boat. Easy to cut, drill and sand and will never rot! www.boatersworld.com

Google Seaboard or King Starboard. That's the stuff you want. It's what I used to build my "walk-thru tansom". See thread below for more info.

I have been thinking of doing the same thing. If you get this project completed, I would love to have some details on how you did it - what you used and the height of the placement of the shelf.

I am going to take measurements this weekend and order the stuff. I will post pic of the project.
