water can run uphill, via capillary action. That's how trees get water from their roots... and it can go a long, long way uphill.

I would check the muffler again under power.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
