    I guess I really have to figure out if they have drains & if not I need to create some. Still curious about where the water originated.

I haven't found any water in mine, even after rains (although I haven't had the boat for long). It seems to me that they would drain into the bilge if they drain at all. I don't think they're connected to the cockpit drain system, which goes overboard.

They are glassed in with wood trim and I have wondered if they are suppose to have drains in them, but I can't locate any, though the corner nearest the cockpit feel like they might have small holes in the them. They do gradually dry up, evaporation or I sponge them out.

Any ideas about what is going on? The best I've come up with is that they do have drains in the front corners that are stopped up somewhere downstream, and then spilled back in when she was leaned over. But even that seems far fetched. Any help with the mystery or ideas about draining these "pockets" without drilling holes into the locker and quarter berth would be appreciated.
