Either a leak on deck which needs resealing or an internally leaking hose, you name it! It is a constant battle to maintain a sailing vessel. And it usually happens while we under way.
For this very reason, as well as for any unforeseen emergencies, we’ve decided to add a “roving bilge pump” to Cool Change.
The new “roving bilge pump” is installed in the locker below the cockpit and accessible through the engine room. It features an 8 meter hose, so it can be used almost anywhere on the boat.
It already has proven its worth when one of the aircon overboard hoses came loose and pumped some 50 plus litres of seawater into our bilge. It only took a couple of minutes to pump it all over board thanks to this powerful pump.
