Boat maintenance in exotic locations

...One definition of cruising!

Camaret proved no exception. We had repaired a hole in one of the water tanks when we arrived in Roscoff. Filling the tank in Camaret, once our epoxy repair work had hardened off, we were dismayed to discover another new hole and yet another soon to be hole! Approx 1cm round holes in the water tank all along the same horizontal level, 4 in all. Maybe a faulty weld?

We had a chance to finesse the repair technique,  making a little iced gem out of epoxy on a rubber disc, and pushing it into the hole. 

I hope next time we fill the tank it will hold up well!
