Leaky Anchor Locker drain
I have a Spindrift 22 with a shallow anchor locker above the V-berth. A plastic tube runs from the anchor locker drain, through the cabin, and out the front of the boat (it is pretty short.) I am having a leak. I am 99% sure that it is a combination of the drain seal and cracked fiberglass. The leak has clearly degraded the fiberglass around the seal, but it has only started.
Should I get a professional in there to cut-out the old fiberglass and repair it? Will it suffice to seal the cracks very well and redo seal? Since the danforth goes up there, I'm afraid that the surface repairs may not hold.
This would also be my first fiberglass repair. If it is a sensitive job, then I'm not 100% confident in my work.
