Re: Jeanneau Attalia

New Question!

I am looking for some Attalia wisdom here.

I recently did a return crossing Barbados-St-Lucia-Barbados. Starboard Tack to St-Lucia and Port Tack return journey.

When on a Port Tack (healing with starboard hull well in the water), I get water ingress. Not sure where from. Its not any of the thru hulls in the head there are two (I had these closed during the crossing).

I'm thinking it may be through the manual bilge pump in the head. I'm not sure if all Attalias have it but on the stern wall in the head I have a y valve with a manual pump and one of hoses ends in the head floor. It's the only thru hull on the starboard side left (which I believe exits the hull on the starboard side close to the stern.
The Jeanneau Attalia Manual I have is unclear when it comes these thru hulls.

Any wisdom/ideas/thoughts would be welcome. I am now in salt water and water down below is very damaging so I would like to avoid it if possible .
Now based in Barbados.... and wait for it.....the boat is too!

Waymar - Jeanneau, Attalia
