Re: Tartan 3500 Anchor Locker Leak

The leak from most people's anchor lockers on the T3500 and T3800 is because there is a gap in the skin of the hull within the drain passage itself, leading back to the bilge. Sealing this with epoxy is very easy.

There should not be any leak back at the aft end of the anchor locker to the bilge at all - an anchor locker is meant to be wet, draining out ONLY to the ocean/lake.

I have not heard that anyone who has sealed these drain passage walls with epoxy has experienced further leaks.

When you drop the chrome clamshell drain cover in the water you can get a replacement at West Marine.
