Oh...oh... I think I have barnicles and other critters clogging my galley (never used, kept seacock closed) thru hull. Tried to winterize...poured about 6oz pink stuff down....only a bit when down, rest pooled in sink. Think they were painted in spring. Will check at haul out in a week or so and do the screwdriver scrap I guess...any suggestions??? Thank you

Lola,

Watch out for those picture frames.

Anything else that is fragile will brake in a boat.

Have fun. We like to hear that you are having fun sailing, not only maintaining the boat.

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"
