|Cut off ends and a section to experiment with.|
|Clean cut ends ready to be joined back together.|
I finally got inside the boat and got out the water that the tow boats bilge pumps didn't pick up, about 12 gallons. I also put the port sheet winch back together. Amazingly, I still have all the pieces to it, even after the sinking and 2 days under water! I also put some plastic and tape over the holes in the deck that will eventually be repaired so as to keep them from allowing more water in the next time it rains. I have a feeling this boat will forever smell of the Hudson River.
