Re: Newbie questions after first time taking out sailboat
Sorry, I was under the impression that the water was winding up in the cockpit. The idea was to run lines of chalk "across" the boat. When the water hits the chalk, it will wash the chalk away. That lets you determine from where the water is coming.
Do you know if the Americans have plywood cored hulls? If so, the water could be a problem. I wasn't aware that those boats had a separation between the hull and the cockpit liner, but maybe that's true. If that's the case, and there isn't a core, I don't think I'd be overly worried about a cup or two of water.
