Leaks & More Leaks


Randall’s been sawing on the boat again with a little miter saw. It’s never fun to cut wood you know you’ll have to replace with $40/foot teak but he didn’t like the way the caprail was pulling up at the bow. To get to the wood, we had to remove the bow pulpit and the foreward stay so the top picture shows what it looked like before demolition. We also have all the stanchions and lifelines off to epoxy and drill new (leakless!) holes along the entire length of the caprail. It has rained almost everyday in Brunswick except for this past week so it has been confirmed that our leaks are not going away by themselves. The worst leak is right above Lily’s berth so she can’t wait to get rid of the drip bucket she shares a bed with.

    >We are getting lots of rain in League City now…. starting to find more (freshwater) leaks in Honu Lele. One alarming leak was so loud I thought it was the deck scupper until I realized the dripping noise was behind our A/C panel… yikes!
