IMG_3079Q is thankfully a very dry boat. Rarely do we find any water in the bilge. In fact Alubat was so confident that they did not provide an automatic bilge pump (you have to turn on a switch and choose port or stbd)… so we thought it might be good to get a warning if the boat was starting to sink.

We looked for some easy to install… very loud alarms to provide a great early warning system if liquid starts to accumulate in the bilge. We found these on Amazon… the Sabre water leak alarm that seem to work well. Conveniently they came in a 3-pack… so we have one for each side and a spare. We installed them with velcro so it is easy to re-position them and remove them to change batteries.
