Nice project. You are certainly in the right place for it! When I was working on my hull it seemed that every thing unusual that I looked for was available in the Netherlands (flat oval tube for example) but almost impossible in Ireland.

The condition looks good inside although you can't see the bilge in the photo. Will you blast and recoat?
The deck looks open, is this because there was a wooden deck or has the metal been stripped? What are your plans there?
One of the built in tanks has been cut out, if it was mine I'd remove the other too.
