My wife and I crew as a couple and have logged about 5K - 6Knm miles on a variety of vessels.
We have also chartered a sailboat in the San Juan Islands
and in Greece
as part of a flotilla.
So far in each vessel that we have sailed with the cabin
sink drain plugs will pop out when underway and under certain conditions. I think I understand the mechanics of the situation with outside sea water
putting pressure on the through hull
and popping the plug
In our continued effort to be good crew and not waist water
we were wondering if this is a common problem or are we just inept at figuring out how to keep the drain plug
Any advise or suggestions are appreciated.
