Re: Heavy Listing to PORT !

I'm confused where this is exactly? Can you post a pic? Is this the midship bilge? On my 1979 P35 I am able to access this right through the cabin floor hatches. Or are you saying it's ever further down under the bilge floor?

On ours (Hull 443) that midships area doesn't completely flow to the aft bilge. To completely dry this out I hand pump it out. Usually fills up when the shower sump overflows or after a heavy rain via the anchor locker. Completely full, that area is 4 or 5 gallons at the most before it flows into the aft bilge.
