But you may ask “how is it possible during the hot summer?”. What you should be asking is why are you asking the author of this post known to be…”An actual bunghole….. which is the tap hole on a beer or whiskey keg, so called because it is sealed closed with a wedge or cork called a “bung.”. And if you wanna see a couple in action…….
So yeah, it seems like Zoot Allures is NOT sinking anymore…. and sorry for letting you all hanging with suspense for the past month and a half. Feel free to use the title, or variations of it, to describe your feelings about me. Because I……..

The leak problem was fixed after pouring thickened epoxy in that god forsaken, inaccessible cavity, plus sticking some epoxy putty up ol’ Zoot’s bunghole. Now all I have to do is to check on a diaper to sooth my paranoia.
Fixing the for mentioned and partial rebuilding my mooring really did me in. Plus other stuff have pissed me off, like my genoa roller wouldn’t slide up the furling thingie which I solved with lots of soap and water, but it has be soo windy the past month the genoa sail is still bagged in the v-berth…. along with 400watts of solar panels.
That’s probably why my only visitors are black swans!
I got kinda lonely so I rolled up my new bladder dinghy, stuck it into the back seat of my car and rolled down to the family farm in Nafplio for 10 days. Good times. Now I’m back, the winds have subsided. 10 more days and I’m back at the day job.
Sea trials of the electric motor are coming up so…
Stay tuned… and don’t hold your breath
ps….day job starts on a Sunday. Sonafabitch!
