Mickey strikes back

Andrew Porteous down to work on his boat this week discovered a leak in the cold water pipe in the galley. Quickly enlisting the help of Hunter Williamson, the boys managed to shut off the water and mop up most of the spillage for which we are grateful. Examination revealed the problem lay with the foot or so of flexible pipe joining the cold water pipe with the mixer tap. No frost recently but if this is rodent damage, it has chewed through the stainless steel braid covering the pipe. With teeth like that, I will be careful to shake out my sailing boots before putting them on in future!
