Some things were made to drive a man wild.
A leaky boat is one of them.
You can make it out of wood or steel, or fibreglass.
You can triple-line it.
Paint it and reinforce it, but every goddamn boat leaks.
There’s rarely a hole.
Water has some sort of quantum capabilities where eventually, the probability of it being in the boat is higher than outside the ship, and your feet get wet.
The best approach to a leak — the surreptitious ones at least — is to accept it and make bailing it out a part of your routine.
Trying to fix it would only drive you insane.
