Making a Battery Tray

All there was to hold the battery in place was an old bit on 2 x 4 and some metal bar which weren't even properly attached to the hull so I set about making a new battery tray, properly glassed in.

Before - Obvius place for battery but no tray

Making the mold - I used Beeswax as a release agent - different, but it worked!

Laying up the glass

Plug removed from mold

Tidied up and ready to be glassed into hull

Glassed into hull and rubber matting added

Battery in position - just needs proper clamp to hold it in place now
