is under the sole of the pilothouse. At the front of the motor
there is a sump and at the bottom a hole that passes through the bulkhead. This hole has had cloth of some type stuffed in it to keep oil
from passing through but allow water
. On the other side is the bilge
with a pump. I want to remove the cloth, clean the sump and bilge
and then put cloth back in. I was thinking I'd just use an old cotton sheet but wanted to know if anyone had experience with this? A similiar design? Is it possible the cloth is something special?
