Blenny in the intake. Klaskino Anchorage

We were leaving Klaskino Anchorage, taking up the anchor, when suddenly the washdown water stopped flowing. Steve checked the pump and it was running. Funny thing, the head pump woudn't work either - no seawater coming through the line that feeds both pumps. Something had clogged it. We raised the anchor anyway, unfortunately, putting a lot of mud in the bilge. We had to cart seawater from the galley to flush the toilet.

When we arrived in Coal Harbour later that day, Steve closed the intake to clean the hose and felt the valve cutting something. When he took off the hose. there was a blenny, neatly cut in two.
