Water Leak??

By Captain John

It doesn’t matter how new or impressive of a boat you’re on, a boat is a boat! This means constant maintenance and fixing of small glitches. Yesterday evening I decided I would relax with a glass of wine and review the next leg of the trip in the Pilot House. To my surprise I was greeted by a small drop of water from the overhead onto my head!!! After an hour of searching and inspection, I found a small leak under an antenna mount on the top of the wheelhouse. My years of boating have taught me that water will find a way to go where it wants to. Luckily, this was a small issue that was able to be repaired with a bit of 5200. (This is the most extreme of marine sealants!) Captain Bob snapped a pic of me finishing the repair before the sun went down.

Evening Repair!
