      Harder than wood, easier than steal, probably like aluminum or a softer metal.

          Did you remove and seal up all the penetrations in the transom before pouring it? From what I can see in the picture you left the 3 drains at the bottom in place?

            The transom does not go down that far on the bracketed models.

              Stroken,

              Being that you have done a 261 and 261B could you please tell me if the 261 (200 gal)fuel tank will fit in a 261B (185 gal). I have a tank from a 261 I rebuilt and my buddy bought the 261B from Castrohasanafro and it has a bad tank in it. If we replicate the larger tank can it fit in the 261B without mods to the liner?

              My 261 tank has a tapper to the height starting at roughly 14" tall and growing to 16" tall. We do not want to derig his 261B till a tank is ready.

                  Sorry for such late reply, but I believe they are the same tank, 200 gallons

                    It’s seems like it has been forever, probably because it has. But slowly chipping away on this boat. I filled in all the drain channels, so had to come up with a drainage system for the front fish box. I came up with this 1/2” pvc drain system for the front hatch. I also put floor drains in the two side boxes in the U seating that will tie into the back side t that isn’t complete. I have a piece of 3” PVC ripped in half running down the center of the boat to the bilge area that I will tie all of my drains into.

                      Wahoo! It does still exist. I hope the work continues and we don't have to wait another 3 years for an update.
