Aiming to Reduce Your (FF) Weight?? The Lightweight Tunnel Cover …!!

You may have seen the recent blog about the weight reduction program in John Hanson’s superb Flying Fifteen, 3539.  John had lots of good ideas, but the one that catches the eye is replacing the tunnel cover in the floor with one in carbon.  I thought you might like to see a photo of the end result.

If you are interested in having a carbon tunnel cover made for your boat, just drop us a line on datchetman@flyingfifteen.com .  We’ll put you in touch with the manufacturer – who is in the rowing world, by the way.  They use lots of hi-tech engineering to support our National Rowing Program.

  1. Great to see 3539 getting regular use and TLC. It was launched November 1995- fitted out on my driveway! In those days the correctors were placed at the shearline , between the hull deck joint, inside the tank- if the boat is a little heavy now, have you checked to see if they are still there? Nick
