Re: Full Keel
There's nothing like that on the Tums - just an open bilge with a bucket and bilge pump.. but the same goes for the old 6-metres, 22-square metres, Dragons, YW Diamonds, Couta boats, Mullet-boats, Cornish Shrimpers, etc., etc.., etc...
Like somebody famous once said: "The best bilge pump in the world is a frightened crew with a bucket"
