    The sponsons will be partially open (the nose will be open about a foot like you can see the center floor is and there will be a transom plug too in each sponson).
    The gas tank and battery will take up pretty much all the room in front of the transom.
    So I guess previous posts were accidentally deleted, someone posted a picture and description of the flotation foam in their VKing. On each side of the boat there were long pieces of foam from basically the transom to up past the front seats. That is a good idea I will probably go with when I am ready to put my flotation in. Maybe 1ft x 1ft x 8ft foam boxes I can make myself with two part expanding foam or even sheet foam. I didn't want to put it under the floor again.

    When the boat was sitting in the yard before I could put it in the garage, snow caused some damage to the top deck. You can see in some of the first pictures there are cracks right in front of the driver and passenger seat areas. I have since pulled and pried the fiberglass back into place and then fiberglassed the back holding it together. You can still see where the crack formed because I haven't filled and faired it. I really don't want to re-paint the top deck but with all the cracks, oxidation, and splashwell replacement I think I might have no other choice??

    The boxes on my King stayed dry for 30+yrs. I removed the posts to keep your build thread less cluttered. I figured you had seen them.
