Love a bit of Timmy Turtle!

Very entertaining viewing.

Favourite was when he went through every colour in the ZMan range and caught a fish on every colour in one session.

Yeah I saw that one - pretty epic session - it was amazing how many half hook ups he would get in one retrieve, before finally getting the hooks to stick - those bream were on the chew that day.

If you want to hear him talk about sanding and cleaning up epoxy for 30mins - watch from the start - other wise you can fast forward to 32.48 for a bit of high speed timelapse and not miss to much

Yeah you'd imagine it will have to have self draining decks

Theres a shot of another skiff in the back ground - look like a "sit on top" as opposed to a "sit in"

Yeah he said he was going to line the bottom of all the lids with foam seals - so I reckon, he reckons, it will be water tight. I've been on bream boats with similar hatches and the concept works when large amounts of water comes over the side. (as long as the Hatches are shut at the time) Sort of like water off a ducks back

I think he is going to fibreglass in 2 large airtight chambers that take up about 1/3rd of the deck space - one up front and one down back - so the hatches that open and close are the ones he has to worry about - those are the ones that will have foam seals

Cutting drainage holes in all the separate storage compartments and adding a bilge/bilges sounds like the safest option.
