Are you at the boat now?

Expert:  Yachtwork replied 19 days ago.

Don't worry I am here to help.

Expert:  Yachtwork replied 19 days ago.

The first thing we should do is go to the electrical panel and find the switch for the toilet and turn that off. That might just clear the fault until morning.

Expert:  Yachtwork replied 19 days ago.

Then we can trace down the source of the sound and figure out what to do.

Expert:  Yachtwork replied 19 days ago.
