Anchor locker
« Reply #15 on: April 08, 2002, 04:54:16 AM »

Could the water be coming from inside the anchor locker?  On my boat, there is the forward tank deck plate, an inspection port to access the windlass (which leaked and I had to rebed) and another inspection port forward to access the bolts for the anchor roller.  Or could it be the drain at the bottom of the anchor locker which is supposed to let the water flow out.  Maybe there is a crack there?  There are many areas in and around the anchor locker where water can enter.  Possibly, your boat is on a slight slant which makes the water come from the bow area and run on the starboard side.
 Hope this helps.

Water in Bilge

I also had a mystery leak into the bilge, it turned out to be a small leak in the fresh water line to the hot water heater. If your pressure pump cycles once in a while it is a sign of a leak. mine cycled about once every hour which was enough to occasionally fill the bilge to turn on the bilge pump.
