WOW! you clean your bilge with a powder-puff? The view down in front of the engine, below the companionway steps is the access to the bilge. It is the aft end of the partial full keel and is a triangular, 35 gallon well about 5 feet deep from the cabin sole. I can assure you there is not a dwarf on the planet small enough to stuff down that hole.
sorry - lost the attachments
