I don’t know of the article you refer to but there is a bit about bouyancy testing in the Wayfarer book (page 17). I have made the dry testing device described with a length of 5mm plastic pipe from B&Q mounted on a piece of wood as shown (in the book). Drilled out a couple of old bungs to pass the pipe through for the rear tank, got an old inspection hatch cover again drilled for the forward tank and used an old bellows style pump to pressurise with thereby saving my lungs. It works a treat. Thoroughly recommend the Wayfarer book.
