MikoMan Evolves

I’ve continued to change MikoMan to meet the needs of the voyage. Most of the seats have been removed providing more room and reducing weight.

The shelter at the rear of the boat is being built and will include the control console, two bunks, the battery box, solar panel regulator and cooking area.

More work and MikoMan continues to evolve. This included installing the bunks and rain tarps, painting the boat, and adding LED headlights (for emergency) and an inside overhead light.
