The boat we just purchased has a LOT of oil
in the bilge
. In some areas it is coating the bilge
to just under the cabin sole
. I suspect that some previous work by the PO or someone else is the source as the engine
(Perkins 4-154) is working well. I have heard, though, that these are leaky engines. The big question of the day is how do you legally get that oil
out of the bilge. We're getting ready for a haulout. Is there something that can be better done shoreside? A lot of the areas are not readily accessible to just hand scrubbing so I was looking for ideas.
