So the previous owner installed a windlass in my boat. (81 310 sedan bridge). Well we've always had a problem with water entry into the berth, for obvious reasons. Luckily, this was done right before I got ahold of the boat so it hasn't rotted. I'm wondering what I should do with the gaping hole in the deck......I'm thinking of a metal cylinder, sealed to the deck with 5200, into some sort of a sump that I can pump out. Or maybe a hose off said cylinder into the bilge. Just reduce the hose size somehow. Or just rip the windlass off and seal it back up. Or a drain hole. But even if I drill one, I have no idea where it'd go...... Thoughts.???
