Roger that, I am going to try to set up a bilge pump that will take care of the shaft seal water before it even hits the bilge. This should take care of a lot of the water.

What boat do you have? You may have said but I can't recall.

One possible solution is to glass in a bit of a dam to keep the daily drips from the stuffing box in the aft part of the bilge, but low enough that a flood would fill the main bilge. Then the main bilge over the keel bolts could be kept dry with a sponge after it is pumped out. A small low profile pump could be used in the aft section, like the Whale Supersub. A stuffing box that only drips when the engine is running helps as well.

Nice boat - I see it is back in production. Introducing THE NEW S&S 34

No desire to sail around nonstop? It seems to be a popular choice for that.

Thanks for the ideas. I may try a non stop, but I have a 4 and 6 year old now and they need to get a bit older, the wife would not allow me to be gone for the 11 months or so, but that also gives me some time to prepare the boat. Whenever I take the boat out, and the kids are acting up, I tell my wife "I might not be back".
