Bed Time Stories & Other Boat Projects

After spending a harrowing day in the heat fixing a few things up on the mast and working on other small projects around the boat, Rob decided to open up the manual bilge pump (Whale Gusher 30) at nine in the evening.  You would think that he would be content sitting on the deck relaxing with a beer in hand and enjoying the sunset.  But no!!!!  He had to satisfy some weird curiosity-man-thing by pulling the bilge pump apart only to find that the membrane is torn and the metal cups on both ends are corroded really badly!  It ended up being a late night for him and I think he went to bed wishing he picked the beer over the bilge pump, but also glad he did his man-thing to discover that we need new parts for our bilge pump. – Sophia & Rob
