It's got just as many tubes as my Karebill 12,
Not all the tubes were seamless on my Karebill, These are.
Increased surface area 60%,
Reduced gap by 50%.
Reduced voltage loss
Maintaining flow with a livewell pump,
 That only draws 1.5 Amps
 ;D Hoping to break 700cc/min on tap h2o  ;D

The only problem I had with the karebill, was the glue seams  :'( .
So I may go another route bonding the decks to the ends.
Turtle seems to have found a good glue.
Or I may plastic weld them.

Sounds good, Spike.
And yes, Keith knows lots of mechanical stuff and solutions. He should know the right glue.
