i wen to the boat today after two days of rain. and i found that there wasn't that much water in the boat. i just got a little hand held pump and started pumping the water out not bad at all.

Good to hear - as long as you visit the boat once a week, that is pretty much the drill.

is the mooring protected from the wind or exposed ?
