Our water maker is also in the Stbd ER, and only leaks
a very small amount of water. We're not having any issues with the Stbd side at this time.
We are hauling in 4 weeks in Grenada
for the summer. I have already asked the yard to remove the hard rubber rail on the scoop (though I may do it myself if I have time) and check for any separation or obvious leaks
at the hull/deck joint. I'm also going to ask them to evacuate all the water that is in there now and see where we stand in the fall - to see if it might be coming from somewhere else.
Thanks to everyone for providing a variety of thoughts. I will let you know the results and findings when I can.
