Re: Emergency leak repair

Wooden plugs, Stay afloat and marine tex. The foam sounds like a good idea.

I have two dewatering mechanisms attached also.

I my head I "T"ed off the hose with a ball valve which leads from the diaphram pump that pumps our shower sump. I have 20ft of coiled flexible hose stowed connected to this. in an emegency thatb hose will recah all sections of the bilge area.

I also have a similar "T" in place with ball joint from the thru hull which by raw water intake to the engine. I have a 30 ft hose with a threaded end which screw into this. I can then use the engine itself to dewater the boat. ( this is also how I winterize the engine on the boat also)
