Marsh Harbour rains...

by Skip Gundlach » Mon Jul 31, 2017 12:18 pm

Last night at 2:33 we got a squall. I closed the hatch and slept through it - but it sounded like a lot of water coming down.

We just finished another lovely squall, sustained 20+ knots and lots of water. So much that our forward tank, including the auxiliary under the salon seat, which relies on gravity to drain, and a full tank under it to fill via standing pipe water pressure, were overflowing.

I thought I'd have to release the bung for that but found it seeping water. Undoing it got a bang of air and then water flowing out. I replaced it :shock:

Opened the stern tank, and it too topped off the incoming pipe. Yay, FULL tanks!

And of course I had to bail the dinghy, which also had lots of water in it! :lol:
