Other than small daysailers, no boat's cockpit is going to drain to a bilge. Certainly anything over 20 feet with a typical deck/cockpit arrangement will drain overboard or through dedicated through hull fittings (hopefully properly installed and valved.)

The main issue with many boats that were not specifically built for offshore duty is that the drains, while they'll handle rainwater and the occasional splash OK, they may take too long to drain a cockpit filled with a breaking wave...

However having owned such a boat I can tell you there are few more efficient bailers than two panicked women!

Re: Islander Freeport 36

Re: Islander Freeport 36

There are cockpit drains. I have never drained a cockpit into the bilge. I have never seen anyone do that.That would be dangerous.

Re: Islander Freeport 36

Thanks Mr. Perry, I wrote that hastingly I think, I googled Islander Freeport no bridgedeck, and found a what seemed otherwise very seaworthy 27, where people who bought it had that exact situation, and were trying to change it (water draining into the builge). Sure, it seems insane. I also found a fairly indepth description of someone changing the companionway door, to a long door, as the old one was worn out. They suggested to always keep the door closed while underway, and while having the new door fit tight, they expect to have no problems with water getting in. Will follow them, hope it works. Thanks again, I am quite calm about all of it now - thanks to you. :-)

Re: Islander Freeport 36

Sow:
One way of doing it to comply wirth regulations wne racing is to have a lower door panel that comes as high as the cockpit seats. This door panel has to able to be locked in place. But you can step over it. Keeeping a full height door in place alll the time while sailing is crazy. 99% of the time I'd have that big door wide open. The ease of going below on the F-36 is one of it's attractive features.


One of my bigger boats MARLIN having some powerful fun on the coean with the big pilot house door wide open.

Re: Islander Freeport 36

That, is a beautiful thing. I am talking to a rare artist.. I have to say this: I have looked at many boats. One thing I have found, is that after a while, I have noticed that certain boats, simply put, almost turn me on. I know, that when I already like the boat on the outside, and then look below, I automatically either get "that feeling", or not. Your boats -:-) - Art. Yeah, the people did also replace the boards with the single long door. They did mention that their friend fell in through the companionway during some sort of freak wave, hence Im sur that is a big part for them why they want to keep it closed. Fair enough, I would hate the feeling of being sort of stuck on only a part of the the boat. I guess maybe simply replacing the boards would be enough, if they are older, and leak. I seriously dont think this should be a big problem. Mostly, I wanted to have that confidence one needs to fully enjoy what they are doing. I skii as well, I happened to be near a slope when we got a surprise snow storm, so I rented the equipment, told the man the boots are just a tad big, didnt have the confidence, but told myself, that I cant let this ruin a rare day on the hill, and pressed as hard as Im used to. Naturally I ate it, ate it hard. He replaced my boots, but the rest of the day just wasnt the same. Knowing what you told me, Im sure the " shoe fits". Thanks again!

Yes I know it is not blue water. Can I ask about the Catalina-22 ? This boat is (new to me) previous owners have changed some things and it looks like a nice boat for its age. The two forward drains run out the sink ? I have two shut off valves at these drains. I have one on the sink. Are these forward drains just for rain water when the boat is on the trailer ? Should they be closed underway ? The stern has two drains for the cockpit. Total of four drains.
I am learning and this seems like a good opportunity.
Kind regards, Lou
