Wood Boat Leaking

wood boatOne of the main concerns with boats is what to do when they are leaking or taking on water.  We explained some tips for you when the boat is sinking but here is a trick if you have a wood boat that leaks badly (all wood boats leak).  Get a length of 2 inch PVC, 12 feet long.  Cut it in half and attach a 90 degree angle to the PVC. Position the pipe so the 1 side is under the boat in the water and tie the other half to a piling or anything handy.  Fill the hose with sawdust and attach a garden hose to the pipe.  Turn the hose on and the sawdust will be blown under the boat and fill the cracks that are leaking.  This takes approximately 2 hours and will cut your leaking drastically.
