You just brought up the only real weakness on the CS, yes the bilge is shallow and it can be a pain in the rear end. Pretty much anyone that has a problem did not know that the chain locker wasn't sealed properly to the deck
and in big seas beating into stronger winds the bow spends lots of time underwater and fills the chain locker and before you realize what's happening you have it sloshing inside. I had the exact same thing happen to me on my return from Hawaii
. When we got home I carefully sealed that area and we never had another problem with it. This issue is now normal in all new boats because all the entry level production boats have shallow bilges, so if you can live with a new Benni/Jeaneau etc. You an live with the CS.. Absolutely a great boat
