Yes... hilarious... my laptop is very touchy and misses words due to the tablet sensitivity so it erases words and sometimes I miss the proofreading before I submit... I promise to preview the post before submitting... let me know if my grammar is up to par with sailors here!

Re: Very odd odor

I Googled the info that RichH posted and that of Transmitterdan; What came up was a 5 yr old thread from sailnet about a onion smell coming from the fresh water system and Peggy Halls solution for fresh water sanitation.

Good call Transmitterdan thanks.


Now, ya'll get to kick me in the a$$ for not doing a search here first

Thanks for the replies everyone

Re: Very odd odor

These fungi dont live IN the potable water system ... and if they are odiferous, its not coming from the potable water system ... unless the vent line is inside the boat.

Carefully check the 'wet' bilge as a starting point ..... etc. ;-)

BTW - That 'recipe' for fresh water sanitization is for the commissioning of *new* or freshly 'cleaned' tanks. Aint for 'dirty' or contaminated.

Re: Very odd odor

Check all of the obscure, relatively inaccessible places in the boat where an onion might have rolled during excessive heeling, etc. I had found soda cans after they froze and burst over winter under the settee, behind the freshwater tank- not a storage area but right next to the storage area where I kept soda cans.

Sorry for the confusion, I was not bashing the old public school system. I was raised in the 70's and 80's system myself and enjoyed going to college while still in my 11th grade in the honors program. My personal opinion is that the school system has gone downhill a bit since then but there is still hope.

The redacted post contained a couple of joking points, one being the linked chart is for natural rubber only. Other types of rubber like cyano's, polyacry's and some fluo's will have a reaction to acetic acid. This would include many types of gloves, o-rings, gaskets, weatherized coatings, pipe insulation, coated organic plastics (like certain mounted wiring guides), flexible containers and the occasional coated surface of cheap cabinet liners =D
