  • water in forward compartment

    Just purchased a new '06 CC25. I'm getting water in the forward v-berth compartment that appears to be coming from the anchor well. Is this to be expected? Spare parts, clothing and tools stored there have all been ruined by sea water. Shouldn't that compartment be dry? Can it be safely sealed to prevent this leakage from the inside?

    Thanks,

      Thanks Tom. Water is getting into the anchor locker both from the hatch (which isn't sealed with a grommet) and perhaps the port side drain hole. I'll try sealing the floor of the anchor locker and that should take care of it. The only other question I had was; is it safe to seal the floor of the anchor locker, or is the leakage in the floor intended as an additional source of drainage?

        Water will get into the anchor locker through the top hatch and sometimes back through the drain hole. It leaks through the drain hole on the bottom side of the hole into the V-birth. The floor is glassed in on top and then the hole is drilled. You can grind out the glass around the hole and reglass to seal it better. The V-birth should be dry.

          Water in V-Birth

          I have a 2005 CC-32 and also have the problem of water under the V-birth. Seems like a CC factory problem which Mac is aware of. When I first took delivery of the boat, I had over 1 1/2 inches of water in that area. The New Jersey dealer was down on the boat a few times as was Mac & Keith. They have fixed most of the problem but I still get a small amount entering by way of the anchor storage drain hole. As the bow hits waves, water is forced into the drian hole and eventually finds its way under the bunk. The New Jersey dealer is going to repair the problem over the winter.

            I always assumed that the front V berth locker was supposed to get a little wet as I have a hole at the front through which the water comes in and a hole at the back through which it escapes.

              Water from Anchor locker

              I have a question for those who have responded to the thread. Can water enter through the drain hole for the forward anchor locker and somehow make it into the bilge? It is the only place I can think of that water could be entering my bilge (discharged through the aft bilge pump) This only happens when it is rough and when the bow is meeting a head on sea. The bilge light never comes on when it is calm or when we are in the river. In the ocean when it above 3 feet my bilge cycles regularly. (I have a 2001 28 w/diesel jackshafts) A classic example of this was two Sunday's ago. On the way to the Gulfstream it was smooth (3 hr ride) bilge never came on. Trolled into the afternoon , again, no bilge activity. Around 2 pm water kicked up a bit and we trolled into it and with it. Going into it we took on water. Any input would be appreciated.

                That is where it is coming from. Read the threat to the end that I have a link to posted above. That is how I will fix mine.
