This is the best solution. Forget trying to make a dam - you will only pay for it on the other side by the locker not draining when it gets water from another way. We have an electric start outboard, so we have a battery anyway. Unbelievably, it took me 2 years to realize I could just add a bilge pump and always have a dry dinghy.

It is blissful.
