Re: Chain Locker Overboard Drain Question

The drain hole is above the waterline. Usually the only thing(s) in the locker are is rode, chain and maybe another anchor. You want it to drain.

My biggest issue has been objects plugging the hole from the inside. We store some garbage in the anchor locker during long passages.
