Re: forward: Newbie Dave just got a San Juan 23




A cubic foot of fresh water = 62.5 lbs. 4 cubic ft of foam will give about 240 lbs of floatation. Best to distribute this in bow and stern. However, if you want real floatation I suggest going to at least 10 cubic feet. That way you can also support the crew. No point in making them hang i the water just for the gaiters to nibble on.

In reality an SJ23 sinking it a problem. If the hull stays intact it will keep you at the surface. The biggest concern lies with the thru-hull fittings. Pay attention to the quality of the fittings and the sealant. See Tech Tip B17 http://www.geocities.com/Yosemite/2358/b_hull_tips/b17.html
