Works real easy!

Bloody brilliant!

Gladrags1 In pulling the knotlog transducer, you do get a column of water before you get the plug in; it's not too bad and the bilge pump has no difficulty handling it. I can't imagine a 1-1/2" hole and how fast that water will come in! I guess you would have to have every thing you would need for the job and not have anything go wrong! Now, when has that ever happened?

The first time is the worst Still, after that it just scares the crap out of you

Seriously, it's not bad, a little water sprays around but not more than a towel can wipe up. The ones I've had did not have a flapper. No big deal really.

sailingdog This isn't too bad to do... especially if the knot meter housing has a flapper to close off the tube as the knot meter is pulled out. I don't have a problem with it, since I could sail with my knot meter out...and the two amas would keep the boat afloat. The cabin would be a bit soggy though.

Stillraining Its very interesting actually..

If he fit a wooden plug in the through hull before hand, once inserted little water would enter the boat..but Sealing it properly is still crucial...so I guess either marine Tex or the underwater curing epoxy clay type ribbons that you need together is about the only two choices.

This actually is probably a good thing to have seen done once in case you had to do it at sea for some strange reason someday....This is something I would not do except in a dire emergency ...Like the Choy Lee that was lost here a while back due to through hull failure...but it could save your bacon someday..if the boats half full of water and still climbing what do you have to loose...

Carry on...

mitiempo There won't be a video I don't think. He was too busy treading water while trying to put sealant on a through hull underwater to hold a camcorder.

Intelligent people don't always do intelligent things - this is one case of that. His penny pinching got in the way of his common sense.

Stillraining Well......Id still be very interested in the sealing agent.... and a video if you don't mind?..

JomsViking I called it a stupid idea, because it is, and wanted to save your boat.
I don't care if they're the toughest, meanest bastards in the world, it is still a stupid thing to do (careening is something else, but not a way I'd recommend doing it either). I've been around boats and boatbuilding all my life and have done some stupid stuff, hence I have the experience to tell that this is indeed stupid.
Nothing against you or them, but being tough, does not always equate to being smart, not even if you survive doing stupid things.

I know for a fact that I survived a full storm in a Dinghy, but that does not change that what I did was incredibly stupid.

And I am a bit direct, but blame that on my parents

Please do haul it, ot alternatively - depending on location of the through-hull, heel the boat over, it's really easy with a line at the mast-top (I don't use the halyards directly for that).

AND.... Happy sailing to you too
