Re: Mystery water in bilge in CAL-29

I noticed a similar problem to Barry's on my O'day 35 (also similar to Barry's ).

The wet exhaust hose that ran from the mixing elbow to the waterlift muffler (one of the few hoses original to the boat) had a longitudinal crack in it where it met the muffler. It looked fine, until I removed it. I would get about gallon every hour of motoring. This hose has since been replaced, and I have added a CO detector to the main cabin.
