Mabuk the Cadet Engineer has to find a way to make the pump housing dry. Would you like to help him out?

The problem Mabuk has to solve is how to make the pump housing dry.

He wants to do a good repair job. He knows that the plastic steel compound he has will not stick well to any wet surface on the pump housing.

Furthermore, the amount of seawater coming out is a lot! The valve cannot be closed properly. 

The compound will take at least one day to set to full strength. It’s not advisable to keep the leaking water flowing out like this. It will increase the engine room bilge.
