Re: Tartan 3500 Anchor Locker Leak

Thanks for your excellent drawing. Looks to be accurate.
On further study I have found the bulkhead material is very mushy at the point the wash down discharge hose penetrates the bulkhead and passes thru into the anchor locker. As a result, the hole is much larger than the original penetration. The net effect is the opening to the v berth is now 3-4 inches lower and closer to the bottom of the anchor locker, making it a lot easier for seawater in locker to pass thru to the hull floor under v berth and flowing to bilge.

Question now - how to best apply at least 1/2 of new bulkhead to v berth side and how to best seal on locker side. I also plan to relocate the wash water pump discharge to a point 3 " higher on the bulkhead.
