Re: Tartan 3500 Anchor Locker Leak

Sorry, I should have been more clear. I was suggesting sealing off the lower drain, then putting in a new one higher up.

Are there any check-valves or the like that you could put in line with the drain? It probably wouldn't take much, just a "flapper" that would close off the hole. You might wind up with a bit of water pooling in the anchor locker, but it sounds like that might be better than having the seawater come in and swamp the boat.
