Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] aft lazarette hull plug

One our SM the plug is just behind the bulkhead on the starboard side in the lazarette in the well where the outboard propeller tends to sit when it is in the lazarette – it is just above the waterline and allows drainage of the lazarette. The plug had a plastic vertical fin to hold to turn, but we found this twisted off and so we fixed a piece of wood screwed from above to give a better hold of the plug. I think someone mentioned in a previous post they found that water came in from around the bolts holding the bumper on when under way and so they re-seating the bumper with sealant which cured the problem.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] aft lazarette hull plug
I'm getting some leakage into the aft lazarette (several quarts over a two month period). I saw some discussion here a few months ago (and can't find it now) about a drain plug on the starboard side in the aft lazarette. There is a round "thing" that is
likely the plug on stb. and near the forward bulkhead.
by the way I was curious about the origin of the name "Lazarette", and this is from Wikipedia:
