Thanks RX,

Mainesails posts are required reading as far as I'm concerned. I'm committed to a dry bilge now. I even got the turkey baster to prove it. (Actually the turkey baster was something I read about on a thread, not sure which one.) That and the wet/dry shop vac works wonders.

Finally, I rigged a device to catch the rain coming from the mast, before it gets to the bottom of the bilge where the keel bolts are. Been pretty happy with it, just have to remember to empty it every so often.


Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
