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.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
