Re: Went to the boat for a sail..and its Flooded!!!

Generally it is good practice to keep nasty bilge water from engine sump away from rest of bilge and from illegally being discharged overboard

Yes, well Bill Schock definitely doesn't post here since he passed away in 2009! No word on whether Tom Schock comes to these boards.

WD Schock is now owned by one Alexander Vucelic von Raduboj. As far as I can tell he has no notable yachting background, although he "dabbled in sailboat design while in architecture school".

Re: Went to the boat for a sail..and its Flooded!!!

It happens to all of us. I'm not buying the "out of sight out of mind" comment of having a good sized bilge though. The only thing not having a bilge buys you is a wet floor and whatever happens to be near it quicker. Have been making a point of lifting a floorboard when I'm passing by regularly and also pushing the manual override on the bilge switch until I hear it suck air when I leave the boat. This quickly tells me if there has been excessive leakage based on how long it take to hear the sucking air sound. I AM going to add a second pump with a switch though.
