There are cockpit drains. I have never drained a cockpit into the bilge. I have never seen anyone do that.That would be dangerous.
Yes I know it is not blue water. Can I ask about the Catalina-22 ? This boat is (new to me) previous owners have changed some things and it looks like a nice boat for its age. The two forward drains run out the sink ? I have two shut off valves at these drains. I have one on the sink. Are these forward drains just for rain water when the boat is on the trailer ? Should they be closed underway ? The stern has two drains for the cockpit. Total of four drains.
I am learning and this seems like a good opportunity.
Kind regards, Lou
