saramona16 Posted May 17, 2015 Report Share Posted May 17, 2015 Hi everyone, I am only a junior so my knowledge of sailing is quite small haha,but i would love to learn as i seem to have a new obsession with sailing, however. I have recently bought my first boat to which i believe to be a mk 11 14ft Mari. It would be great to have a few questions answered that have arisen over the past month of owning it. Living in Victoria means we have had a fair bit of rain lately; and having no garage to have the Mari means it sits in the driveway with a tarp over the tramp. The problem is when i tipped the bow of the boat up to put onto the back of the car, about 1-2 bucket loads of water poured out the drain holes on the back of the boat, it has been sitting in the driveway for about 3 weeks and the amount of rain we've had lately might be why it was filled with so much water, but i was wondering is this a normal occurrence for the Maris hull to fill with water whilst outside under rain? i have taken it out twice sailing without too much drama. Another question i have is what is the difference between Cat Rigged, Sloop rigged and Super Sloop rigged, an explanation would be fantastic. Thanks!
