Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
Keeping a boat covered will help protect the seats and the overall appearance of the boat much nicer. Keeping a boat in the water, ans should it rain on that boat, the most important item that you need to make sure is working is the automatic bilge pump. If it is not working, the boat can sink
The bad part about having a boat covered when it rains, is that not all boat covers all 100% water tight, some water will still get into the boat. This is not a bad thing if you can get to the boat and uncover it and allow it to dry. Otherwise mold wil start to grow on the seats and the bottom side of the cover.
The water will drain into the bilge of the boat, and then the pump will pump it overboard. Leaving about an inch or less in the bottom of the boat. Most of the time the auto bilge is only connected to one battery, the pump would run for several hours before the battery died.
The typical location of this pump is directly below the engine.
Any other questions on this?
