My recent battle of removing a rusted ball of anchor
chain out of my anchor locker
has me thinking.
The drain holes on my locker aren't right at the bottom of the locker (no am not interested in drilling more holes). So there is going to be water
pooling in it and that becomes a corrosion
issue with any chain sitting in it. I feel it is worth the effort and money
to fill it in and am wondering the best combo of cost effectiveness and ease.
Whatever is used needs to be easy to lay in from the top and shape to fit. And it has to be something that wouldn't plug
up the drain hole and still allow water
Possible choice that come to mind:
- fill the low spot with some cheap
polyester etc. rope
- fill with sand/gravel to bottom of the drain holes and then pour resin on it.
- use spray foam to fill
BTW - we are talking a triangular space about 6" on side and 1-2" depth
. It will be hard for me to go head
first into the locker and work
easy due to fat man hanging headfirst in deep locker syndrome.
