Hi. I have an '81 22 foot. See attached photos...I hope I uploaded them correctly. Under the V berth cushions, there is a wooden cover for a storage compartment, and upon closer inspection there is a hole in the bottom. Any thoughts?

That is a limber hole.

Thanks, eherlihy. Why do you think a limber hole was required in that area? I suspect in drains to the small bilge just forward?

The hole says that you don't store stuff in there that can be hurt by getting wet. They expect water to get in and that hole is to let it out. (into the bilge)
