Found this today. It was tricky becuse the leak did not surface until about 45 seconds into the runtime, and when it did it emerged right in the drainage trench! This will be a costly repair.

Some folks seem to think that wrapping pipe with tape makes the hole they just put in it go away.

I think I'll try that spray on stuff from the tv to stop leaks. Heck, if it keeps a boat afloat, it must be good. Right?
