whatever floats my boat
Hey Trevor, I would like some beta on your Sea Pearl. First, if you are willing and able-- some pictures of the interior, sans equipment. I'm seriously thinking of ripping out my aftermarket ballast tanks, they are plywood and glassed, and the plywood in one tank is completely rotten and waterlogged. I want to visualize what it looks like without tanks. Scout would be returned to her original configuration. I'm thinking of adding fancy floorboards that would mimic the tanks and increase storage, with some rock ballast perhaps.Second, how long are your oars and how do you find them? I'm rocking 9' now, too short. I tried 10' and a little too long, but they were clunky. I'm thinking 9'6", obviously... I seriously think you should get your SP to Maine and we should coordinate and slay the coast together.
I'm planning to take the boat out this coming Sunday for the day. I'll try and take some pics of the forward cockpit to post here for you. I imagine I have a lot more space to sleep than most SP21 owners. As for oars, I'll measure them, too. I think they are nine feet. They seem just a hair too short. I think your idea for 9.5 is about right on. I'd love to make it to Maine sometime. I've never been that far north, but it looks amazing in photos.
