A blog about SCAMP (Small Craft Advisor Magazine Project) boats. Covering the build, sailing the boat and the scamp community that has formed around this little portly boat.

Details: non skid floors, yoga mat seat covers, neoprene mouse pad mast pad

A couple small items and things we've done.
First is the non-skid sticky tape that I put down on the floor. It works very well. Left a lot of sand to clean up in the first few days, but highly recommended.

I still don't have a good drainage strategy. I'm considering putting andersen mini bailers down there in the footwell, but I have to get up the courage to put a hole in the bottom of the hull.

My wife complained about the hard seating on the first day she sat in the final boat. So we had the idea of a yoga pad cut in half. Here it is rolled up.

And this last picture shows the yoga pads in place. You can also see an automotive 12v battery analyzer in the circuit breaker panel. It displays the battery health.

I didn't get any pictures, but I got worried about the mast hitting the bottom of the mast box floor and eventually wearing through the fiberglass so I cut an old neoprene mouse pad and put that in the bottom of the mast box just inside the mast hole. Seems to work fine.

  1. Jeff, I don't remember your footwell...is it new? Also, I love the yoga mats. I'm going to do the same thing. Let's sail Yellowstone Lake in 2016!!!
