room My 50 ft Cat has a fiberglass
wall which separates the engine
room from the rest of the vessel, as does the bow compartment. It is obviously an extremely important feature of this wall to keep water
out of the rest of the vessel in the event of an engine room leak. The two engine room have their own bilge
pumps. My fuel
pipes run through the wall by means of a 50mm PVC sleeve pipe towards the main fuel tanks
situated mid-ship in each hull
However, I put a hose into the engine room to wash it and discovered that the watertight compartment "aint so watertight" and water
flowed through the 50 mm pipe to the main bilge
1. Surely a leaking compartment cannot be correct? 2. How do I best seal the three smaller fuel lines situated in the larger PVC sleeve. What product / system should I use.
3. Is this method of having a sleeve through a watertight compartment O.K or should I be re routing the lines?
