Re: Help pinpointing a leak

I've discussed this mystery at length with my marine grade advanced composite Magic8Ball. And the 8Ball said to me, when in doubt, apply Occam's Razor and remember, the razor is free but you've got to buy the blades.

The PO, like all PO's, treasured the boat and concealed nothing.

The surveyor, like all surveyors, was a highly experienced professional who never drinks on the job or within twentyfour hours before doing a survey, and he missed nothing.

There was nothing wrong with the boat when you bought it or had it surveyed.

But when it was being hoisted in the Travel Lift, or set back down again, a gravitational anomaly bounced it on the keel and that's caused things to "come oft agley" creating the leak.

Seems like the simplest explanation to me, it just wasn't obvious until the 8Ball expanded my conciousness.

Meanwhile, what has to be done, has to be done.
