Re: Divider in the chain locker on a PSC 34
Here's an alternative. We put as much chain as will fit in the port bin (hand fed) first, then the rest goes into the bigger starboard bin. As it works out, we rarely get into the "reserve" bin. We keep 200 feet of 3/8" which is the same weight and probably similar volume (?) to 300 feet of 5/16". We fit about 60 feet in the reserve bin. You would fit more, of course. When we do have to use the reserve, it's no big deal re-stowing it in the two bins upon weighing, certainly not as big a deal as cutting out that divider. Different story if you are single handing, though.
Yes, the locker does drain to the bilge.
