Re: How to block water???

My go to would also be 4200. I used exactly that to do something similar in the bilges of the mother ship. I think it worked. It is a bit messy looking.

I have a suspicion, especially with your hose penetration, this may be a frustrating endeavor. If any water gets past, or in via the seat, it probably won't drain back at all. I have the exact same dinghy setup, but she lives on davits, with the plug open. If I recall, yours lives at a mooring? Too bad there wasn't a dock to pull it up on and open the plug.

I see little contained bilge pumps for dinks too, with tractor batteries and some with mini-solar panels. How about a canvas cover and some interior bows?
