Finally taken delivery
of our 28 y.o. 'new to us' Roberts steelie. Just learning
how this boat works. The kitchen / galley
sink drains through a hand pump to the through-hull as shown in the photograph.
I find itís a bit hard getting rid of the sink water
. I take it the pump stops water
flowing backwards into the sink Ė is that correct?
Just wondering peopleís view on this Ė is it better to have this or preferred to remove pump and just close off the valve when sailing?
PS, I donít know the sea water level compared to the sink drain level just yet.
