I fitted the variable tank at last.† It seems long ago that I made this and its been sitting in the garage for ages.† Anyway, the plans show it welded directly to the hull, but I decided to make it removable by welding on stainless brackets and bolting it to those.† Iíll do the same for the side brackets.† I was careful to make sure that when the valve is tightened up, it will line up with the through hull for the handle.

Using the gantry and chain hoist, this was really quite easy to lift into place and fit.
