My boat almost had the same fate as this one if it wasnt for my astute neighbor. My raw water deck wash pump apparently formed a crack over the winter on intake side and when my boat was launched last spring, it slowly leaked until the hose came off. My boat neighbor noticed my dual bilge pumps running nonstop for a couple hours, and ran over to the boat to find it was taking on water. Wasn't quite to the floorboards as the pumps were keeping up. He located the through hole fitting, closed it and the water receded. All was good again. If it wasn't for him being there that day, I am pretty sure I would have arrived in Boston to find my boat at the bottom of my slip. So scary when shit goes wrong.
