Re: Sinking sailboat on dry land

Luckily I store the rudder in the cabin when the boat is on land....or I would def be needing one of those. I still have to investigate how those drain holes got clogged. I think im gonna have to do some replumbing so this never happens again.

dead leaves? I just raked as many leaves to the kerb as I did in the fall. They get EVERYWHERE!

Re: Sinking sailboat on dry land

leaves, mice, birds, squirrels.... there are countless villains that can clog your drains or scuppers. Really need to inspect frequently, not sure than re-plumbing would matter.

Hopefully, you were able to dry it out before mold began to grow in places you can't reach. That is a much bigger problem. I would get a heater and a fan aboard for serious circulation.

Re: Sinking sailboat on dry land

I've been thinking of putting a coiled cylinder of insect screening in my drain holes when on the hard. Depending on where I'm blocked in the marina there are always leaves, acorns, and shells from seagulls making their way onto the deck and in the cockpit. I'm thinking I'd just flare out the end so they don't fall into the plumbing.
