Re: Do you guys check your bilges 6x a day!?

visual check/ the other things mentioned above sound like normal running maintenance
our bilges are dry unless she gets a wave over her with a hatch open or some other crew or owner error /usually test the pumps and float switches by pumping in salt water it doesn't hurt the timber
each vessel needs it's own safety / maintenance protocol possibly each owner as well
