Siphon through Sink?
OK, this is probably the most basic question. AND my boat has a warning sticker against it.
I sailed today without closing the seacock under the kitchen sink on a long reach with that side under water. I put about a foot of water in the bilge and soaked everything under the sink.
I know the water came in through there but DID NOT come up and out the sink. So what happened. Back in the harbor the seacock is not leaking and never has when something is put down the sink.
Once I pumped the bilge out everything seems fine.
