Hello wise forum,
We have recently purchased our new to us Carter Offshore
50, hopped onboard and have set out cruising. Very very steep learning
curve in so many ways!! Coming now to 2 1/2 months aboard and here is my burning question:
sink makes quite loud gurgling sounds. It kind of makes sense I guess as the drainage from the sink flows mostly straight out to a thruhull slightly above the waterline. But it is loud. Funny
thing is that I hadn't heard it the first few weeks. I believe at some point I was cleaning
the bottom and found barnacles
inside the thruhulls so I cleaned them off with a stick/dowel. I believe the noise
might have started (or gotten louder) then. Does this make sense?
Does anyone have this on their boats? Is this normal or is it maybe a sign of some incorrect installation
I might need to address?
As always, your thought are greatly appreciated!
