    Is the tumble-home penetrable?

    Yup, the stringer is the waterline. 1" of height above must be penetrable. Nothing in the rules says that 1" must be vertical, though.... :)

    Have you considered possibly putting small slits in those wiring loops just in case you need to remove or replace one of your wires?
    On a side note, this boat is awesome!

    Never though of slits... not a bad idea... I normally just snake the wire through and re-solder the connection if needed. The slits would enable me to remove wires without breaking any connections. I will have to look into it..

    FYI, the designer is not really a proponent of the holes in the frame pieces, particularly the ones below the waterline stringer in the bb impact area. Otherwise freaking excellent build all around.

    love this build. Sheeting around those barbettes sticking through the tumblehome looks like it'll be fun though

    If the holes are a problem they could always have short sections of pvc tube glued into them, make them nice n strong.
