Thanks for getting back on track!!
Epoxy sealed the limber holes and the pass throughs for the various bilge pump/drains and water lines. The sump is quite deep so there will little accumulated water anywhere at any one time. The various drains are piped direct to the sump without passing through the grid; just the water that finds its way down the mast (internally) has to 'use' the limber hole route. I've actually chosen not to 'limber' every compartment; if I get a leak or water into those areas that shouldn't have any then I'd rather know about it and deal with the source than just let it drain and get pumped away and be oblivious to it.
