Crazy first time on my sailboat .... part 2
I finally had a few warm days in a row and I was able to get in the boat and check out what caused the water filling the cabin.
This was a long thread back in November of last year. I mentioned putting some pictures up when I got a chance to get inside.
This was a PITA to get inside and remove the cracked hoses. Cheap flexible plastic hoses that gave up the ghost long ago.
This is a trailer sailor, that I may keep in a slip or moored near my house in a fresh water lake.
It's a project boat and my learning on boat.
I'm prepared to hear about needing new brass through hull fittings, replacing all plastic. Possibly complete new fiberglass work to the entire hull, along with the dreaded foam treatment inside.
I'm thinking using a thicker walled fuel type rubber hose and double clamped stainless hose clamps to make the connections before testing float worthy ability.
Flame suit on and shields up .... here goes .....

Planning on getting this boat wet before the season is past me ... and keeping the inside dry !!!
