Freshwater Tanks are IN!

As in, THEY AINT COMIN OUT!! For a long time at least. Spent the weekend fitting the final water tank (starboard) and ultimately securing, plumbing and filling all 145 gallons of freshwater tankage. The top picture shows the final product with the floorboards and center battery box removed. Second picture shows the compartment just forward of the tanks and the plumbing for the inlets and outlets. For now the plumbing will just be those long stems until I get the mechanical design of that compartment sorted out. And... no leaks!
