We have just returned from sailing around Britain and had a lot of trouble with water coming in and flowing over the floor boards. We have previously had trouble from split bathing shower pumps, but not this time. Some times there was water in the main cabin, but mainly in the fore cabin.
 
The main problems arose whenever we had a beat to windward in a stiff breeze, with water coming over the bow. The water came into the fore cabin and the mattress was often wet, with water filling the small wooden shelves on occation. We had to lift the floor boards several times to dry out.
 
The water seemed to be coming in somewhere behind the wooden cabin lining. Some times there was white powder also.
 
I have tried looking for possible sources but can only think it must be getting in where either the toe rail or mooring cleat on the port side is fixed (It only leaks on starboard tack).
 
Has anyone else experienced this ? If so, any suggestions for solving the problem?

Hi,

It is most probable the anchor well!
When you inspect it in the marina everything appears to be perfect, but in rough seas the chain is hopping and pushing the bottom of the well open!
Sea water enters under the chain box and enters the front cabin!

To test this possibility you have to remove the chain and have somebody jump inside the box while inspecting the edges. You might be surprised!

It's salt water. I will check on the anchor well as suggested by our man in Greece. I have spoken to the Hanse office in Hamble and it has been suggested I check any cable runs from the anchor locker also, and also take out the self tapping screws fixing the toe rail and re bed in sikaflex, together with the bolts holding the mooring cleats which evidently screw into an aluminium plate. I will let you know if I get a result.

Hi,

I've just seen your neat idea of drilling an hole in the floor of a Hanse 320 to get to water in the bilge at the lowest point. Do you remember where the hole was drilled?

Many thanks,

Luke
