Dry it out then lay kitchen roll on either side above the current level in the bilge.. plug the for and aft drain holes into this area and see what happens.. if theres water nd the paper either side is dry.. could be time for your keel bolts to be checked.

Re: Where the water came from?

I'm reminded of one of Steinbeck's novels where the group at Cannery Row would sneak around their friend's boat that was stored on the hard. At night they would glue barnacles on the hull.

Have you checked to see if you have friends with an empty water jug giggling on the finger pier?

Thank you so much for the kind thoughts. I don't know about dinner out, right now, with the operated eye patched, my depth perception is just not working very well, plus no peripheral vision at all! I'll be getting the patch off later this a.m., and then see what happens. (I trust.)

Re: Where the water came from?

The taste test would let you know if it were black water, or salt water, but here's another way to tell if it's salt. Put a couple of tablespoons of the water on a saucer and set it in the sun. The water will evaporate, and if crystals are left behind, voila, salt.

Boatie's suggestion for finding water coming in from outside/underneath should work well--good one, Boatie.

Now, a question, you wrote "ruptured bilge hose", was it actually blown out????? very odd if it were (not usually a high pressure deal), but cracked or chafed through, much more common, and if age-cracked, best to replace the whole run.

Not all folks who work on boats for you are thorough or hold themselves to high standards, so if you come to believe you might want to change to someone different, HappyMDRSailor, might have that situation figured out, and might be able to recommend someone for you, could do it by PM.

Here's hoping you have a speedy solution.

Topmast, we've had an engine backfill, but the water only made it as far as the pistons and valves, didn't get out. So, I don't know how it could get out as the water level would equalize outside to inside, wouldn't it? What am I missing---maybe if the whole engine were below the outside water level, maybe then...... Boy, that would be very bad news....

Heal well Ann. And enjoy the new clarity of vision.

I used wrong word, the some area I used quite stiff material hose which split open, crack open, not ruptured.
Did the taste test, and was fresh water. Water may from deck.,
Next time, dry the bilge after sailing and leave it without wash for couple of days and check.

Re: Where the water came from?

If the leak is slow,don't panic. Dry the bilge, sprinkle talcum or even flour and wait a while. You will see by the water trail where the water's coming from. Fresh water is not so threatening

Re: Where the water came from?

Thank you everyone,
No leak from keel bolts, very happy about this. Check all bilge hoses and those are fine.
Only source I found was from mast boot, looks like when I washed my boat, water went from there. Need to replace it!
Thanks again,

Re: Where the water came from?

Which begs the obvious question...


If you had tasted the water at the start... would it have tasted of "deck-wash", which is mostly fresh, with a hint of salt and seagull poop.
