Just as a follow up…..


The source of this leak was finally found, it was the spinnaker pole deck fitting above the starboard side of the V-berth, the water was working its way down in a small gap between the bonding and the forward bulkhead then aft, in a gap between the bonding and the internal woodwork, the water was finally able to escape onto the floor between the floor side and the berth/seat front.  I can claim no responsibility for fixing this, it was the Rogers yard that finally worked it out!


Had a very wet sail channel crossing on Saturday and it was so nice to finally have a dry boat inside.

follow on (b)
Glad to see your problem has been solved Goerge but whats to stop it happening again?
Having examined the same problem on my boat, I find that neither the berth lockers, wet locker or f/ward locker are drained.
Although the lockers have been bonded to the hull, water can still escape in the corners especially when holes have been drilled for cables.
Consequently any water collecting here seeps out under the floor.
I wonder if any owners have found a way of sealing and draining these lockers?
