Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] espar ducting

Hello again Eric,

I remember you telling me the story in Florida…

There is a little drain hose at the bottom of the rope storage under the mizzen mast.
You could add more and/or also add the same trap door. Just a thought…

Alexandre,
We were knocked down by a series of rogue waves coming
over the starboard side filling the cockpit. Unfortunately
the trap door was open and water exploded out of the vents
inside the boat like a fire hydrant.
I was just thinking that if the air intake was in the
cubby under the mizzen there would be a reservoir for the
water to continue to fill the ductwork.
Fair Winds,
Eric
