Re: water in stowage compartments
Hi Tom, which storage compartments are you talking about? The ones in the cockpit seats or inside the cabin?

Where abouts are you, Tom? Pray that it's not what Darryn is leading towards.

Re: water in stowage compartments
Hi Tom, I am interested in helping explain as much as I can to help with your problem. The more information that we have the better idea we have of pin pointing the problem area. Are we talking about the storage compartments in the quarter births or under the front bunks. As you could appreciate due to the age of these boats previous owners have at time done some alterations and the inside od your boat may be slightly different to others so some photos would be good to help explain the issues. you can email me direct if you like.
James Shannon, not sure what you are praying for?

Re: water in the stowage compartments
the water is in the storage compartments on either side of the galley and the ice box
this boat is on the trailer
i will attach photos tomorrow
thanks
i believe the water got to the bottom of the boat over time from rain

Re: water in stowage compartments
Taste it, is it fresh (slighty salty) or salt water? That will help you narrow down the source.
