Hello and thanks in advance for any advice/help. I have a new to me Oday 192. I have noticed a small amount of water in the bilge when sailing and have tracked it down to the centerboard pennant channel. there is a horizontal tube in the bilge that is connected to a vertical tube to the cockpit by a flexible hose attached at the keel end with hose clamps. the end attached to the Vertical tube going to cockpit has no clamps and it appears to be seeping out of that connection when moving forward. I don't think there is quite enough hose on the vertical tube to attach a clamp. my question is can I remove this hose from the horizontal tube in the bilge to replace with a longer one while I am in the water or is this point below the water line and ill start to fill my boat if i do?
