Minnesail,
Yes, this sometimes is what owning a sailboat is about, but the other times make up for it. The problems that you have encountered do not make the boat un-seaworthy. Pump the tire up, clear the clog in the drain and go sailing. Every time I have a problem with Osprey I fix it and then go for a sail, at times I forgo the fix and just sail then fix the issue.
Hang in there, once you have addressed all the issues the next sail will be spectacular considering you repaired and made your way out into the waters.
