    But in mean time i will stick with small boats under 20 foot so i can take them home and not stress out SWMBO and keep them in my pound. small speed boats and fishing boats etc.

    Say end of next year for a big un i hope :):)

    anyway hope folk enjoyed it as much as i did, well more as at time it wasdam stressfull like many projects.

    don't like the idea of bilge pump stopping working all that time and you don't want it water logged
    have you no idea where the leak might be coming from

    I have wanted a Fisher 37 since I was a teenager. Most boys lust after fancy powerboats but I just love the rugged Colin Archer styling.
    Will go around the World and take anything the Oceans can throw at it.

    Itll be a slow ride around the world, the fisher is a motor sailer, now an Endurance would be a different storey.

    Still not a clue. When i get the Norman to the moori gs i will mop out the bilge and have a closer look. I just have no clue really. Very odd.

    do you think it could have anything to do with the placement of the straps when lifted causing a crack in the glass fibre
    sounds like a wet suit and a mask and a good torch
    or local dive club invited over for B-B-Q and let them survey the hull as a freebie

    Its all i could think of myself. And is fo so best thing would be to drag it out, would be a quick fix.

    Ah but then some of that water proof sealing tape, forgot the name, will sort that temp to see if it is a crack. Cant see it being easy to spot though unless its a bad crack then if it was it would be leaking faster than a few gallon every four to five hours.

    Thats my second job though for bank holiday weekend jobs along with sorting the engine out for a weekend at Lancaster.

    PS wouldnt surprise me as the chap that craned the boat is a bit carefree and damaged a bit of the boat with the strapping.

    Gorilla have been advertising a tape which can allegedly be applied underwater, and will stick to anything.
     
  17. Yep, I used some last week to fix the door gasket on our washing machine temporarily, until I got the new parts for it. It worked, but the surfaces need to be clean.
