Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Salt water in the bilge
toggle quoted message Show quoted text
On our Supermaramu we found water in the bilge by the forward head. I assumed that this was from the bow thruster seals as it had a slightly salty taste. However, they were dry. I was puzzled for a while until I realised that shower water was trickling between the the upright edge of the shower tray where it overlapped the shower lining.
We slackened off the screws holding the tray in place and inserted mastic, re tightened the screws and have had no further problems.
The reason the water had tasted slightly salty I put down to the fact that on a couple of occasions in the past 15 years we have had a slight weep from the bow thruster seals when I have delayed changing them and despite cleaning out the bilge a slight residue of salt had remained.
