It's several inches, but that's in the deepest part of the sump. It has to rise almost 4 inches there before it's filling the next compartment aft. I'm going down today and try to get a better idea of the volume of water coming in. I'd guess a few cups...

I mentioned in a previous thread that after the bottom paint went on I noticed a very small weep on the keel. I didn't notice it until leaving the yard for the last time before my launch date. I emailed the yard and asked if someone might take a glance at it before launching the boat, but I never heard anything back and went to down the next weekend to find my boat in the water.
