Sidetracked by the Bilge Pump!


If it’s not one thing, then it’s another. If not that, then it’s the first thing all over! After starting on the floor with the First Mate, and setting aside all of my projects, I had to leave her with it and replace the bilge pump that had been giving us trouble. The diver was ready to pull the prop shaft so he could replace the cutlass bearing, and I didn’t want to be taking on water with only one bilge pump, so off to clean the bilge and replace the pump!
