    it was just on the news... boat did not sink... chopper dropped down an emergency pump and it was enough to keep the bilge down to find the leak and seal it... it was towed to shelter island and put back on its trailer

    In the navy all they give you are wooden dowels and a big hammer. Once I shoved my pants into a hole propped myself against it by pushing against the opposite wall and saved merica during a simulation.

    Stood there is my undies but we passed?

    This happened to me before.

    We were in Catalina and on a mooring sleeping after a LONG night of hooping. I woke up in the morning and heard the bilge pump running but VERY slowly. First thing I did was jump up and noticed the back of the boat was very low in the water so I switched batteries and started the motor, which got the bilge running full speed. Then I started looking thru all of the hatches and found the bait pump thru hull has broken off and water pouring in. You could see straight to the ocean thru the hole. We shoved a wood plug in there and it immediately stopped the leak, like bone dry after the water was pumped out. Drove back to LB no problem and had it fixed by the next day.

    Never leave the dock without a working bilge pump, good batteries, and a wood butt plug.

    Only thing Id change is a high water alarm to wake our asses up earlier.
