What erps said.
TQA, you simply CAN"T CAUSE STRUCTURAL DAMAGE TO A BOAT with a shopvac or leaf blower. Please, don't repeat nonsense as fact.
I've done this multiple times on multiple boats and unless you've borrowed the jet turbine engine from a ski area's snow-blowing system, you can't hurt a thing on the boat.
Doc, if you pressurize the boat and throw soapy water on deck, you'll see biubbles blowing from the place where the water gets in. Which may be yards from where it is running out below.
Just be careful, a soapy deck can be incredibly slick. Don't ask me why I know that.
