About 3 weeks ago I flew down to North Palm Bch on a day trip to assess a 1975 30’TSF Chris Craft (Ray Hunt design)for a buyer. Figuring no way in hell Id let him buy a South Fl boat.....But..... hold my beer here. Shes been well cared for and has been refitted once and repowered x3. When the seller hands you big binders of service records and receipts? Here we are... Just arrived today and delivered to her new home in Denver,NC. Welcome to fresh water girl! We got your six! ...

One thing Ive learned in the past from CG training of 15 years is when a boat is taking on water? Assess, stabilze, and Find the source using any resource available.

Last night was a 42’ motoryacht with considerable water in the engine room. All 3 pumps were inoperable (reason unknown)

Assess: no flowing current so the water isnt gonna take her down in minutes. Looking in the bilge I spot an MD5AC pump thats running still.

Shut down the ACs. Shut off the sea valve and pull the hose. Put the hose down in the water and restart the ACs. Water level is lowering slowly so we are ahead of it. We are Stable.

Found the source which was a fresh water line (plumbing) being fed by the dockside water. Turn off the dockside, finish pumping and call it a night.

Today we will go finish getting her back to Normal. Remember, dont panic.... Assess, Stabilize, and Find the source.

Source of the water is always of utmost importance. In this case, "outside" source, such as dockside water supply, seawater from A/C, or hull breech etc... These are situations that will eventually sink the boat! I have also seen several cases that the source was inside, ie, broken water heater and the water pressure pump has pumped the tank water into the bilge. If the bilge pumps are not working, this can be a scary situation, but usually only changes the stability of the boat a bit; it's water that was already there. In either case it is always important to be familiar with your sea chest, valves etc, have ready access to auxiliary de watering pumps and know how to use them. (I hate those dockside water connections; they should be routinely turned off when un attended, as well as the onboard water pressure pump...) Good Job Lee Dahlen!...

Sorry to announce this:

But effective Friday at 5pm our clients will NOT be able to be aboard while we are working on their boats until the new face covering policy in effect is lifted. (Estimated 3 weeks) Im not going to ask my guys to wesr face coverings outside in 90 degree heat while they sweat it off in the engine room without them on.
Currently under the new laws, provided we are outside and not near anyone else OUTSIDE THE HOUSEHOLD we are exempt from this rule.
Thank you for your understanding and we will continue our normal photography/Video communication via text to keep you updated on your boats status.
Lee
