And no hole in the vent-line either I presume?
If you havent joined the vents (I am talking of joining the left-tank vents together, and the right-tank vents together, not both L and R together), do you have two vents under each strake then?

Obviously not.

Yes. Ends about 1" below the bottom surface, cut at a 45 degree angle into the breeze for slight ram-air pressurization. Completely unobtrusive and impossible to damage (although they'll scrape your back if you don't duck quite far enough).

You scratch my back, and I'll scratch mine


Have you given any thought in insect protection. I am considering, and used in my dragonfly, using 3/8"tubing with a screen epoxied into the entrance to preclude arthropod incursion. (of the non-marine variety)
