p.s. Nice sculpture. It speaks to me.
"Two nations divided by a common language". I feel that I have wandered into a minefield of terminology here and propose to withdraw gracefully. The haggis, by the way, is not articulated either but it probably doesn't worry about it. The centipede, on the other hand, may be considered to be more articulated that most. Not at all articulate, though.

I think you may have spelt "Peterbilt" wrongly, BTW. But you may consider that to be a case of picking nits.

And they are definitely not articulate or articulated.

I don't see a problem that a squirt of 4200 wont fix, if it worked put it back and forgedaboudit. I think this is why we as boat owner find one job, fix it and have three more to do before you know it you now have five and on and on and on. My advice quit while your ahead.

SimonV - Yeah, I know that you guys in Oz have a very laid back attitude to such things! However, blobbing 4200 round it wasn't really an option. It was unsafe, unsatisfactory and offensive to look at (though apart from that, it was fine).

Anyway, for some of us, having lots of things to do to improve the boat is half the fun.......

Hey, I am sorry to hear that. But, on the other hand, I laughed mightily. Thank you.

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.

I had only heard of 5200 prior to this post... Thinking that 4200 was a casual misreference to 5200. Teaches me to be a smart ass.

It was mounted at the stern on the section of the hull which slopes down from the transom to the waterline (there must be a technical term for this, but it escapes me at the moment) and has been cunningly designed ( ) to carry water from the cockpit drain and from the electric and manual bilge pumps.

The (large) inlet on the right was attached to the cockpit drain and the (small) inlet teed in on top was attached, via a tee piece to the bilge pumps. The outlet (attached to the large, handcrafted blob of epoxy putty) was situated over a hole in the hull. It all looked as though it had been there for quite some time.....

None of the piping associated with this fine piece of sculpture was in good condition, many of the fittings were of non-standard sizes and several were made from material not suitable for a marine environment (ie mild steel). In additon, the 1 1/2" manual pump and the 1 1/4" electric pump were both being constricted into a 3/4" barb fitting! I decided to replace the lot.

First puzzle was to remove the offending fitting and attached blob. This looked challenging, but proved to be very simple. Whoever had fashioned the epoxy had failed to prepare the hull and so, in spite of its unusually large surface area, it came away with barely a whisper. I replaced it with a thru-hull fitting of the correct size and then re-piped the whole system.

I now feel a good deal more secure about dealing with an unexpected ingress of water......

Stuart

Ok,
I sinned cause i did not read this whole thread.....Pardon but read enough to see the good advice and it still floats and previous owner was a????nuff said.

Now this Morgan 30 is a old boat.Suposidly SURVEYED as all self respcting knowitall heavey in the wallet manly men do.

Can you give us a idea how long this has worked???
My Question
