Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Dry dock bilge usage?

Unless I am mistaking the rain will go through the cockpit drainers (not in the bilge).

Hi , have no experience in this issue. My humble
ignorant  opinion.  Based on the mango not sure where the
sm has  the main sea chest. Loosen the the lid so water can
leak out. But not completely open so bugs can't get in.
Just a thought.

Hi All,



Tracie & I are returning to the States for 1 -
2 months and have had the boat hauled at the Caicos shipyard
in Providenciales.  She is secured in their 'Hurricane
Section' which has large cement blocks buried about
8' down for their anchors.



My question is; Should the power to the automatic
bilge be left on?  There is no power available to the boat
while it's hauled. To conserve the batteries, I'm
trying to decide if I should disconnect all of the power at
the batteries via the two large
red handles or should they be left on so that the bilge can
operate?  What happens it the boat gets a large amount of
rain during a storm or hurricane when it is secured on dry
land?



I know that while in the water if the cockpit is
hit with a lot of water it is supposed to evacuate it
rapidly,, but I don't know exactly how this is
accomplished.



Thank you,



Joe & Tracie
