Re: Chain Locker Overboard Drain Question

With 300 ft of half inch chain and a spare anchor in ours, you can put all the water you like in there and it will hardly make a difference. It gets in through the drain hole, I suppose. But more often by taking water over the bow which goes in the hatch and down the "chain hole" (has a real name that is escaping me). I prefer that water in the anchor locker be fully contained with no way to enter the boat.
