Hello and thank you for your answer.
I understand perfectly with this picture. I would check this point.
Yesterday, I opened the trap door to be able to empty the water which was under the baille. There must have been about 50 liters of sea.
On the other hand, I did not have time to water my bridge to see if the infiltration came from there or anchor box or a candlestick.
I'll let you know as soon as I can do the tests.

In my eleven years old 400, I drain some 5-10 liters of seawater every year. I guess there is some place in the assembly of the hull and the deck, where its not completely water-tight. It seems that in rough weather with the bow dipping in the sea, there is more water inside.
I first took notice of the water after a few years, and the first time I emptied some 40-50 liters.
There is an old thread somewhere abut this subject.
Regards Kjeld

I have 2010 400, i to had a leak, it was the poor finishing and glassing in the top corners of anchor locker where bulkhead (back wall of the anchor locker) joined the deck and hull sides (top back corners as you look back in anchor locker).

Small voids existed in corners and when sailing to windward and healed sea water can get to these corners and make its way into the interior. The finish in these corners with fiberglass strand and cloth and resin meant it was difficult to seal, i ended up using sikaflex to seal up the area and voids and have had no leaks since.
