    Will Selway-Fisher's 32x10 motor barge built in stip plank require ballast under the sole to keep her low and stable in the water? If not, could those bays be used for ships systems? I'm not sure if the area below the sole will be deep enough for anything. Maybe just fill them with foam to help insulate the floor.
