Boat Leak: Quick Fixes While Heading to Nearest Ship Repair Services
Back in 1911 during the launch of the ill-fated ocean liner Titanic, its engineers claimed that the ship was practically unsinkable. Of course, now we all know what happened to the mammoth ship 103 years ago—it hit an iceberg, which tore a hole through its hull, and not even its state-of-the-art ‘anti-sinking’ watertight door system could save it from its fate. The lesson from maritime archeology shows that no ocean-faring craft is unsinkable. If you’re in the business of living at sea for any stretch of time, or just someone who owns a boat, it’s a grand idea to know at least what to do to patch up a hull leak, or how to do emergency repairs to buy yourself time.
