Re: Chain Locker Overboard Drain Question

Not an issue, and an unwarranted concern, the drain is 2 feet above waterline so it only gets wet if it goes below the water level, which then drains when it goes back up.
That might depend on the boat a bit. I think if I drilled a hole at the bottom of the space in my forepeak, it would be pretty close to the water line. For those who are phobic about drilling more holes in the boat (like me), what is the downside to having it drain into the bilge?
