Re: Water in the bilge

I seem to be in the minority re. this.
But as I've managed to make 3 of my own and several other peoples boats bone dry I'm of the firm opinion that this should be done - Just the other day the neighbor boat noticed a Little Water in the bilge (which usually is bone dry) and we traced it to the raw Water pump. The amount was so tiny he wouldn't have noticed in a "wet bilge".
In heavy weather a heck of a lot of Water can get in through locker lids etc which may only cause a very tiny amount the rest of the time, but you'll be happy that you took the time to stop it when the sh1te hits the fan..

Watch great footage about the story of one manís slow odyssey around the UK:
