Paul,

My C36 has a drain on the hull. If this turns out to be your anchor locker drain, maybe consider installing a drain directly through the hull and plug this one. It might involve changing the slope of the compartment, which might be more trouble than its worth.

By installing a hull drain to the outside you would eliminate the discharge into the bilge. I like to minimize what goes into my bilge. Just a thought.

Congrats on the boat.

Bill
