Seal it again...then maybe another time for good measure... I was in the Detroit river anchored for about 8 hours for the 4th of July fireworks. Now I didn't take on nearly enough water to sink but my aft bilge ran for about 10 minutes. now this wasn't even moving anywhere. just med-med-heavy waves while sitting still for 8 hours. with my pump speed, that was about 150ish Gallons of water pumped out..... also in the month before I kept having to run bilge and couldn't figure out why at first... as soon as it was sealed. No more unexplained water.

You can't just blow water through the raw water pump it has to turn to allow anything through it. So you could in theory hook it up to air and start it but you would risk burning up your impeller (raw water pump) not to mention it would leave pockets of water in the system... it's just not the right way haha. I'm sure you will find the ss easy enough to winterize when it comes next year
