Keel Bolt Access Well Water
I have a Hunter Passage 42, 1995 model. In the forward keel bolt access well locker (just aft of the forward head, on the centerline of the boat, I have collected water continuously to a depth of approximately 3 inches (but no above the top of the keel nut). The first time I noticed this the water had a pink color indicative of the antifreeze used during winterization. The source of the water appears to be from some location aft of this access well locker approximately two feet below the level of the salon floor. There is a small hole that is lined in fiberglass. The well locker when it "refills" does not go above the depth of approximately three inches. The water is now clear in color. I have not filled any water tanks as of yet.
Do any of you have a schematic showing this well and any connections it may have to other parts of the vessel?
Any idea what the source of this water may be?
