Faster We've had similar issues with previous and our current boat... closing the through hull is simply part of the 'presail' checklist. In case the through-hull doesn't fully seal under pressure, HyLyte's stopper sounds like a good idea.

Get yourself a pliable stopper at the hardware store that fits the drain snugly. In most cases that will stop the problem.

FWIW...

jjablonowski Or you might try an in-line non-return valve.

allisonleh I too have a 362 and have the same problem. This is a very common design issue. It is caused by the sink through hole being too far outboard. We solve it by closing the valve and enjoying the sail.
