Kölen är nu blästrade och Tom siktar på en sjösättning i början av säsongen 2020! Läs:
I will use this section to ask for your help!
I am the happy owner of Accent 511. She sails super well, and is in really good conditions.
I had half sailing season last year, and it was a blast. I have never encountered any issued.
During the winter; I have given her a new anti-fouling and water line.
I was very happy to start the season, and had plenty of plans in my head.
Unfortunately; I came to discover a small leak in the boat. All normal after a few month at the yard you would say.
But nothing has improved since then, and I trust to have identified the source of the issue.
Keel bolts leaked slightly. I then followed the user manual, and did put a bit of sika. Worked like a charm.
BUT, I do have a continuous leakage coming from this little hole down the stairs.
Sometime 4 liters per 24h, sometimes more.
Looking at the nice tips (Yes, I just became a member!), I trust it could come form the shaft holder (Byte av Stödlagerbock). But I have no drawings of the hull structure, and I can’t access anything though this hole (like you all right?!?!). So, although I can see the accumulation of water, I am not 100% sure this is the cause, yet fairly confident it all comes from there.
And of course, whilst putting the anti fouling, I have not noticed anything.
The leak is manageable so far, but I don’t want having to empty the bilge each time. Plus, I hate the possible consequences of a soaked hull. It also does not look promising to take her to the east coast for longer sails.
Apart from taking the boat out of the water, would you guys have any tips on how to have a ”quick fix to go through the summer”? Do you guys see it on your boats too. What did you do to fix this?
Does anyone has the drawings of the hull?
And if this alters the performances, I am completely fine with this.
Sounds I am then in the preparation of following Tom’s amazing job next winter…
Thank you all so much!
