Re: Help pinpointing a leak

Once you determine the source of the leak, you can decide whether to haul now or wait.

On the haul now side of the equation, you will only have a limited time period and limited daylight hours to work on it in the offseason. If it is a serious matter, like a leaking keel bolt. you might want to haul now and attend to it while you can.

On the wait side of the equation, you just got a new-to-you boat. Install the auto bilge pump and enjoy for a few months, then haul.
