Every so often we would have to turn off the electricity at the marina because of hurricanes and rising water at the river fed lake I'm at. My battery would eventually go dead and water would rise in the boat a few (somtimes not so few) inches above the sole getting in my motor at least 3 times. Understand it would take 2 or three weeks for the water to go down at the marina (Louisiana). This went on for about 10 years thinking I had window leaks, etc. One day I was checking the Steering quadrant under the rear lazarette and found my drain hoses disconnected from the cockpit scuppers and water was draining directly into the cabin. All this time my pump had been working overtime to keep up with the water. I went through 2 pumps and 3 switches. But the nightmare is over.
