Re: C37 Anchor Locker Partition

A suggestion for those who are working in the chain locker of a C37,while in there take heavy gauge plastic and line the v-berth bulkhead inside the a-locker with the sheeting to prevent water from entering the port side cabinets .I have taken blue water over the bow and water enters thru the hawse pipes soaking those cabinets even with the cover on the port hawse and the windless hawse stuffed with plastic.The plastic also helps the chain and rode slide down into the locker.For the chain clogging problem I use my manual windlass handle poked into the hawse to distribute the chain.
Good luck,
Dianne and Chuck Burke S/V NiftyNickers C37 #139
