Mark, what do you mean the hulls stay so dry? Every time after a rough sail (tacking with waves in strong wind) I have to dry the hulls. Wave slamming pushes seawater into the bilge pump
We purchased four one way valves (Whale brand). Hope this helps.
Yesterday we arrived in our winter harbor here in the Netherlands
. Miss Poes stys in the water
this winter. We just reached 4000 nm this summer by visiting all countries in the Baltic
. Total distance now 7222 nm.
Our boat is hull nr 88, "Miss Poes", delivered begin of june 2008.
We put our boat on the sands to clean the Coppercoat and chack the anodes before winter. The folding propellor zinc anodes (imitation but fitting well) turned out to be gone around 90 % after being in the water
exactly 6 months! Beware. I don't know the cause: brackish Baltic
water, voltages / current
due to shore connection, or inferior quality. Any suggestions?
The sail drive anodes are still good enough from new.
