Re: Help pinpointing a leak

It would be really educational if you dry the bilge and take it for a sail in a stiff breeze for a couple hours.
Then compare the leakage rate with the rate at rest.

If it has anything to do with the keel you would think their would be a difference.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
