Our boat is out of the water for maintenance and a leak. Our mechanic visits our boat every winter to do routine maintenance. During this maintenance we were informed that we have a leak in our transom. Leaky boats aren't good. Since we were scheduled to have the boat pull next fall for bottom work (paint and new zincs) we decided to get the boat hauled for immediate repair.
Last Wednesday the boatyard called to let us know that the boat had been pulled and it would more than likely be back in the water by next Tuesday. We took a trip up to see the boat out of the water on Saturday. She sure looks bigger out of the water than in the water. Yes, that's me standing in front of the boat.

We received an email from our mechanic yesterday and he said nothing else was found. When he did some work inside the bilge he removed a screw that was too long and that's where he found the leak. A small leak, but a leak nonetheless. The mechanic replaced the screw with one the right size. They can't find anything from the outside that's a problem so Wes (boatyard boss) is going to look from the inside. So, if Wes can't find anything then whatever happened seems not to be a problem at this time. A mystery as our mechanic said. I hope it's that simple.
Do you know what the acronym for BOAT is? Bring Out Another Thousand. It's so very true.
