There is a problem with the main bilge. I think I have managed a work around. If any of the compartments flood again, try activating the secondary pump in the forecastle.

I'm very worried about the sealant rings on the gas pipes. We already have several small gas leaks. If it gets worse, a single spark could sink this rap trap.
