Re: Help pinpointing a leak

How could this have possibly occurred without anybody knowing anything about anything?

(I don't know nuttin' about nuttin', I swear!)

Do nuts suddenly loosen off keel bolts to this extent of 2 gallons of water ingress per day?

Now, you are out $3,500 for a repair you could have done yourself with a socket wrench, a tube of 5200, a haulout, and a few hours of work. Maybe you are making $10K a day, so it is worth it to you?

It all sounds a bit suspect to me. You buy a boat. It is launched in your absence. It suddenly displays a serious leak. You are separated from $3,500 of your hard-earned cash.

(Darn my critical thinking skills; I would probably be happier if I were more trusting/gullible like most folks.)
