    The port stern storage locker stays flooded. The drain hole is always below the water line because the stern sits low. I have seen other 473s sitting in the same manner. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to solve this flooded locker problem?

    I just keep the plastic gas container for the dingy in there. The water in the compartment doesn’t bother me because the gas cans are a tight fit and don’t bounce around much. I just like keeping the gas cans contained and as far away from the interior as possible.

    1. Put a plug in the drain hole.
    2. stick a pipe ell into the hole with a vertical section protruding above the water line.
