Re: Help pinpointing a leak

Going to install an automatic bilge pump this weekend. I was thinking of installing a bilge counter as well to help me identify if it is getting worse. Someone from the yard came by the boat with me last night. He was just as stumped as to the source of the water and agreed it was not an obvious location like thru hull, water tank, keel boat, etc, but clearly under that stringer.

His only advice was get a bilge pump and keep an eye on it and they couldn't probably haul it until Memorial Day anyway - and he couldn't tell me how long it could take to get to a repair after that.

We had a great sail for about 2 hours - 15 knots of breeze, not too cold. The boat is surprisingly easy for just the girl freind and I to double-hand. When we returned I did not see evidence that the volume of water ingress increases when under sail.
