Through Hull Without A Haul Out

Below is a link that takes you to a walk through of how this sailor fixed a leaky through hull below the waterline while tied off at a slip in a marina. Includes some pictures as well.

Re: Through Hull Without A Haul Out

Thanks for sharing this bold ingenuity. I've changed a few similar ball valves in the water on former boats. but not the through-hull. Wether motivated by finances or just DIY independence it's important for cruisers to know these options. Thanks!

Admittedly, it's not the best, but he did recondition it. The real advantage that he will have over those with better hardware installed by a yard crew is that he will be aware of the strengths and weaknesses of all he has and will be obseving. Knowing your boat and what you have is a great advantage.

Exactly, this was all done first thing after buying that boat. We were leaving for Florida from South Carolina and I did not want to be underway with one bilge pump and an already leaking through hull. The plan was the replace the whole assembly while in the boat yard in florida while doing the bottom job. I will be posting that article and pictures with it as soon as my twins let me.

Necessities sometimes trump safety... I changed a prop shaft on a sport fisher once in the water.... Nearest yard was 100+ miles, and the damn thing would not go straight on one shaft!
