3/28/2012 – A quick not about leakage

I was going to put this in today’s entry’s comments section but then I thought that maybe some of you wouldn’t go back and look to see if there were any new comments. And I certainly wouldn’t want anyone to not know what’s going on. So, a quick note to let you all know that the bilge pump has not run one single time since I shut the cooling water seacock some 9 hours ago. So that means it’s a pretty safe bet that our water tank isn’t leaking, nor is our dripless shaft seal. No, it looks like it’s a cooling water issue. The most likely suspect is the pump but, since the bilge pump ran occasionally even before I opened the pump and installed the SpeedSeal, there could be something else as well. Guess where I’ll be spending my time tomorrow.

Leftover pasta carbonara for dinner tonight.


About sryoder

Steve & Lulu... retired. Had enough of the cold wet dreary fall/winter/spring in the Pacific Northwest. Bought a boat, fixed it up, sold our home and sailed to Mexico in November, 2010. Been here ever since except for occasional forays to the States (summer only, thank you) to visit the kids, parents and siblings. If you're looking for a sailing blog, this is the wrong place. This is a traveling, hunkering in, eating blog. Sailing is just how we get from place to place when we can't walk.
