I get it. Amazing work as usual. Hopefully I can get out for a trip with your team.

Since we are filling in the front windows, that will help with the overall strength too. It just seemed like a lot of nothing right there, and I need somewhere to put the ice. I can't think of anywhere else to hide 4 sacks of ice, and I want to put a watermaker, but there really is no space for an ice maker. And then in a year, I might go seakeeper, so I need to conserve space. It's not going to be crazy big, maybe 4 or 5 sacks. And it will stink putting it up there, but we'll just put ice there for FAD trips, that will usually be empty. And I don't have to carry the ice. Most importantly, I don't have to carry the ice

And you have to keep in mind, I took out the control console which was an easy 500 pounds if not more. So the upstairs will be lighter full of ice than it was before with that console up there.
