Top plywood sizing tip

If you can’t fit it in a Nissan Leaf you won’t be able to fit it through the main hatch šŸ˜¢

We cut the new galley bulkhead roughly to size thinking that it would just fit in the car. It didn’t. So we put it on the roof rack. That meant a maximum speed of 50mph and about a 15% reduction in range. So we made it to the half way charge point with only 8 miles left (only 85% charge when we left home). Then when we got to the boat we couldn’t fit the bulkhead through the main companionway. So the hassle of the roof rack was a total waste of time.

Therefore the top tip is to only bring timber to the boat if it fits in the car (although it still might not fit through the hatch).
