We had a bit of a lay in this morning as the morning mist was around us. You just realise why we're doing this on mornings like this.
have another go at his bodge he did just to stop the leak from the tank, as now he has a new pipe..
So we had to do the pipe, and that disturbed the seal, so in the end it all had to come out again..
Del had some mastic which he used to refit the seal and that worked fine.
Then all there was to do was a bit of drilling and tapping to refit the inspection plate in the right place, so not to put any stress on the pipe..
The real test will be when we fill the tank to its full capacity, where the seal is under water for a quarter of a tank..
The mist disappeared and the sun came out and we both had a well earned beer. Its a great feeling when you make a wrong go right on a boat, especially when you could sink!
