Re: Refit of Too much Interior

It looks good, but

I bought my boat new in 1998 and watched the factory build it. All of the
cabinets and shelves were part of a hull stiffening system and were part of
the hull grid. Did you do any studies or talk to Amel about the effects of
taking out the shelves and cutting the holes for the windows? In hurricane
Mitch, my Amel did not flex and not a drop of water came in even when the
boat was largely submerged under a breaking wave. I wonder if it would have
been as rigid with more windows and less shelves.
