Re: Clean Boat Outside - Disaster Inside

Well you solved a mystery for me. I was on board last weekend and went into the guest bathroom to find some crap in the sink. 3 weeks ago I was hauled out for the stuffing boxes and they pressure washed the bottom. I now have put 2 and 2 together and know what happened! THANKS!!

Great lesson to learn, and thanks for my being able to say 'better learn from someone else's mistakes'.

Cheers for sharing.

Another reason to always keep my seacocks closed.

Re: Clean Boat Outside - Disaster Inside

We always close seacocks, and on the sink drains that have none, stuff a rag over the hole with a dive weight over it. It is an easy mistake to make, just like forgetting to burp the PSS dripless shaft seal on re-launch. (IF you have the non irrigated version) This is why we all should use check lists.

BTW... Don't let anyone down island convince you that they can "pressure wash" the barnacles off of your dinghy and motor. It will work, but also blow seems loose on the RIB, and the paint off of the motor as well.
