Water on the shower floor
« on: May 17, 2002, 12:12:41 PM »

I purchased a Catalina 34 (sail #1203)not too long ago. I love the boat and everything works fine (I think). I have a small problem: when the boat heels at 25 deg or more, some water comes in from the shower drain. Any idea on what I should do about it?
 Thank you.

Water from the shower drain

I had a similar problem and chased it down by closing all the through hulls and then opening one at a time until the water showed up on the shower floor and hence in the drain. In my case the water was coming out of the head – only happened on port tack in heavy weather.   As the warning label says, always close the head values when the head is not in use.
 
 Hope this helps.
