Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Water in rudder


It's normal. It is designed to fill with sea water. Thank you, Henri Amel. BTW, the skeg should not fill with water. I have seen at least 2 skegs filled with water as a result of a serious collision. All 2 were hard to find cracks near the hull.

Good morning Paul,

In short (at least on the SM) it is normal.
This has been covered in several previous post.
Here is a beautiful explanation from Joel:

Sincerely, Alexandre

Hi all,
When I hauled out I noticed a lot of
water draining from the hole in the bottom of the rudder. I
did not notice this in any of the previous haulouts. I have
seen this on other boats though. Is there domething I should
be concerned about?
