Re: Pumps do not do what you think

Jim, that was a great video! But I wonder how calm anyone would be without the boat hanging in the slings. Especially if you consider all the ways a boat could get holed - usually in unfavorable conditions. All the various methods demonstrated in the video would be much more difficult to execute in a pitching seaway. Just finding the source of the leak can be a challenge in itself.
