Re: Northeast U.S. Snow Storm

The reason I ask is because it is not unusual to have a boat, if it is in the water, sink enough because of the weight of the snow to put a thru-hull under water that is not usually underwater.
Then it don't take much, leaky hose, bad clamp, frost cycle to sink a boat.
Either that or no one is fessing up.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
