L450 Locker port forward center locker leak?

I have yellow water in the locker highlighted in the picture by the red arrow.





I don't know how the water got in as the hatch seems to lock quite well.

Does anyone else have experience with water getting into this area? There is no drain.

Unfortunately, it looks like I also have water under the gelcoat in the plywood so it may be a fun week or 2 as I dig it apart and replace it with resin.

Do you have a deck wash connection in this area. It may be leaking on the inside.

I never replied but this was the right answer. I looked more closely and discovered a distinct stain from the valve indicating a slow leak.

Thanks very much.

Now I get to grind out the plywood at the bottom of the compartment and re-glass it. I figure it is a bad sign when water squeezes out of the tiny hole on the edge of the plywood when you put weight on it.

Embrace the suck I guess. \_(ツ)_/
