It's a Sinker!

Last Saturday evening a boat with five on-board sank off of Greenwich and all were rescued.   Read more about it HERE. Make a mental note to check your bilge pump operation and occasionally take a peek at the bilge or engine compartment while underway. 

Larger boats should consider installing a bilge alarm (a float switch connected to a loud buzzer) that will sound when water rises just above the pump float switch.
