In case you don't know this trick for finding the source of a tracking leak:

1: Shut all hatches and portals tight.
2: Open the deck hatch in the fo'c'sle.
3: Cut a piece of plywood to make a temporary hatch cover for that hatch.
4: In the plywood cut a long oval slot that mirrors the output of one of those big floor-drying fans you can rent.
5: Stick the fan into the slot and turn it on, which will create positive air pressure in your cabin.
6: Slop pails of soapy water all over the boat.
7: The source of your leaks is where you see the bubbles growing.
