Its been awhile since I have posted here. I have a 1983 Oday 39, great boat. For the past few years I have been chasing a leak and finally found it in my anchor locker. In 2008, I hit a something about 20nm southwest of Block Island on my way to FL. Had some extensive work done on the bow and anchor locker. It appears that the fiberglass guys left a cavity at the base of the anchor locker below the drain/weep holes. Over time this water froze when on the hard for the winter and tore the tabbing from the hull creating a porous area where the anchor locker water drained into the bilge. Ok, now I have found it I need to repair this. My idea is to fill the cavity with marine closed cell spray foam, then install a fiberglass shelf at the level of the drain holes which are pretty deep in the locker. Did anyone have this problem and fix it or any ideas on whether this is a good idea or not? Otherwise the boat is solid, lotsa updates, great sailer.
