Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013
Replaced the old Jabsco noise-maker with a new centrifugal pump which is so quiet that it could drain the tanks and I'd never hear it running. .
This is a serious potential problem for sure. We made sure that our pressure pump is loud enough that we can hear it.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
