So I was on the boat this weekend doing a number of different projects. One of which was figuring out why the icebox
was accumulating water
. The icebox
is in a lazarette on the port side of the cockpit
and also has an opening on the side into the cabin
. Obvious answer: some kind of a closed valve is preventing it from draining in the drains. This turns out to be correct, but with a catch. The valve isn't anywhere near the icebox. I was able to trace the hose from the icebox and discovered that it crossed the engine
room to the starboard side of the boat, went under the quarter berth and stove, forward ten feet to a (broken) valve on the water
intake for the sink.
So my question to CF is thus: why the heck does the icebox connect to the sink??? Is this a normal feature, or is my boat just "special"?
