Re: Tartan 3500 Anchor Locker Leak

What hull number (or year) is your Tartan? It sounds as if the forward V berth water tank is vented via the anchor locker?!?
No clamshell drain cover or drain on the other side of the bow?
How would the anchor locker drain if the port (I'm assuming) side was sealed to the water dank vent and there was no drain on the other side?
You say "right at the base". Above the waterline by an inch or two, right?
You have a stream of water running into the bilge on a starboard tack from the anchor locker. Where are the openings between the anchor locker and the bilge (besides the water tank vent)? Any visible?
If there are not, then the leak is between the layers of the hull...

I look forward to your answers.
