    Hi! On our boat, the pipe that attaches to both the drain fitting under the cockpit and the drain through the transom is just-long-enough... it shakes loose every year and my husband has to climb inside the lazarette to re-attach it. I wish he'd just get a new one with a bit more give. When not attached, water drains into the lazarette then into the cabin near the battery nook.

    Al. I am having a difficult time understanding the way your boats deck to hull seal is configured so as to cause a leak.
    Can you take a picture and post it here?

    i'd be inclined to think there may be leaking chainplates or stanchions in need of a re bed, or a leak at mast base where the wiring chase enters.
