My Question
I haven't a clue how long it has been in there, but a long time I should guess. It had reached the end of its useful life, since it was beginning to self-detach.

My main issue with it was the basic design which meant that getting water out of the bilges in an emergency was going to be a problem due to the flow restriction. The aesthetics didn't appeal either, but I accept that that doesn't always detract from how well the thing actually works.

I surveyed the boat myself, BTW, and this was one of several things I identified which allowed for haggling on the price.....


Leith (rhymes with teeth) is the port of the City of Edinburgh in Scotland. A Leither is someone who comes from that area.

I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky - I left my shoes and socks there, I wonder if they're dry?
