Hi Bill, thank you for your reply. I read your post previously. The copper tube is eaten away and has to be replaced. Thank you all the same.

Best Regards

Hi Barry,

Danny referred to me and s/v BeBe #387. I documented the cleaning process in the photo section of this website at

The "rigging wire roto-router" tool for your electric drill works great. Have one of these fabricated. Works well for other things like the sea chest output pipes and the salt water manifold (see photos at )...don't leave home without it!
