Re: Boat leaks

Geeze, if I came back to my boat and it didnít have water in the bilge Iíd be worried

As others have said, lots of sources. All boats are sinking, itís just a question of rate. Depending on the boat, having some water in the bilge is no big deal. Of course, it is a lot of water, then itís time to worry.

Standard source are stuffing box, mast (keel stepped), leaks in ports or deck fittings or joint. Worrisome would be thru-hulls or keel bolts. Very worrisome would be something else.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.
