also beware if you over fill it , not only it will displace an amount of water to carry the weight of the boat , but it will also displace an amount of water to displace a great part of the air sac , which could lead to the ship flipping over , i will do the calculations for you and i will post them later today

good point, I hadn't thought of that.
i'd probably do best if I used two containers mounted port and starboard... like outriggers I suppose to reduce chance of tipping.... thanks
