about the sticker removal, dryer or heat gun does work best. i would suggest gasoline for teh rest of the adhesive. i just got done with all the sticker removal and just refinished the gellcoat with wet sanding. pictures will be coming.
Jon, Yes under all the seats are ballast tanks(wood fiberglassed and spared). Behind the driver there are 2 tanks, the smaller side has a small tank and batteries, and a nose tank. It has alot of ballast and no storage, but thats more important right?
