Unannounced and unexpected, it rains very, very hard. The various weather apps I use predicted showers.
The boat is uncovered. By the time I get down there, the cockpit is full of water that is overflowing into the engine compartment and from there into the bilges and so into the cabin.
Another couple of hours of this rain intensity could sink the boat.
It is very, very wet but I bail out the cockpit with a bucket and unleash the fury of the Gulper on the bilge. https://thequietripple.com/2019/06/10/so-much-rain/
I also pump out the cabin.
Rigging the cover is ferocious because the rain is so hard. I succeed but it is strong stuff. Good for a fat old man.
The few photos I took with my beloved Canon G10 exposed her to the elements such that I think she has died.
I think she is dead. This is the third G10 I have killed by wetness.
