|AND YOU WANT TO BE MY LATEX SALESMAN?|
During our last return from Catalina, the automatic bilge pump went on. "We're taking on water!" Leaks in boats are not uncommon. Wise captains will tell you it's not a problem if you know where it's coming from and if it can be controlled. Within minutes we found the problem. The cockpit drain hose had broken off a plastic fitting and water was entering the boat from the stern. We plugged the hole, pumped the bilge dry and continued on our way home. Never a dull moment at sea.
