Re: How much water is normal?

After going through this recently (and asking the same question), this is my opinion. If your boat is not wood... it should be dry... all the time, UNLESS you have a conventional prop shaft packing (which I understand do drible) or simply have leaks in your boat. The leaks could be anything from the mast to portlights. Your taking on too much water!
