Re: Keel: a.k.a Water Bucket

I was able to stick my cell into a small opening behind the step and take a pic of the upper portion of the pipe that connects the cockpit drain to the underside of the hull. I can only see the top half of the pipe.

Looking down the pipe I can see some cracks.

I tried to brush some epoxy in with a long bottle brush but it left only a thin coat.

Tomorrow I am going to try to feed some flex hose (the type with spiral ridges) down the hole. I will seal both ends with butyl tape if I can actually feed the hose. It will be a tight fit so I don't think I need to glue or epoxy it in place.

Note: the pipe pics need t o be rotated upright)
