I came back to the boat after new year to find water rising over the floorboards in the lounge. The situation is worse than before. I don’t know where the leak is so I’m ripping up the entire floor.
A chap from the local boatyard brought a pump round and left it running for 25 minutes but that only emptied half the water. He pointed out that the main water pipe runs underneath the floorboards the length of the boat but it should really run along the side. That’s why I didn’t realise I had a problem for weeks.
Got a feeling there’s going to be a big plumbing bill soon. And it could take many weeks to dry the boat out.
