Re: Dry bilges
Recently there was thread on small dehumidifiers. One identified drew six amps at 12v and remove 4 pints a day. If you connected the drain to a sink drain, sealed the boat, and could tolerate 1200W of electrical consumption, you'd probably have a very dry boat.
If you have tee swage terminals on your shrouds, install rubber plugs if you don't have them already. They make a big difference in the amount of water that gets down the mast.
Thanks for the idea, but we have a furling main, so there is a 60 foot slot about an inch wide that's letting the water in.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
