The sinking reporter

Joe Konig in his really good looking red and white Amphi had with him a
reporter from Ottawa. Apparently the reporter rubbed against door seal
on body. These door seals were the worst ever made. The yellow glue
stuck to body but not a trace stuck to rubber. Plus this rubber tended
to break off. Car loaded up with water and stock bilge pump just could
not keep up. As car sank a run for a private ramp was made. Unknown was
a small submerged sea wall. Joes car got bruised, bent and scrapped up.
It did make it out. "Still alive" Von Dracek used his recently made
trailer got up early the next day and helped deliver Joe's car here for
repairs. Later Dave the Wave

Glad to hear Joe made it out.

Once again we are reminded that the stock bilge pump
should be considered little more than a display piece.
It is basically a piece of junk. Every Amphi should
have a second, modern-style, high capacity bilge pump.
