Aurora II is a 61' Trumpy owned by Jim Moores of Moores Marine, Inc in Palm Beach (http://woodenboatrepair.com/). Moores' absolute preeminence in the field of wooden boats manifests itself perhaps most strongly in the care of his personal boat. Moores gladly embraces cutting-edge technology when it aides in the preservation of legends like his 1947 Trumpy, and Arid Bilge Systems definitely fits the bill here. "Keeping the water out of the boat is just good for it," said Moores in an interview. Especially with older wooden boats, where structural integrity is at risk by wood rot, having an automatically dry bilge is a very valuable thing indeed.
