My 1976 model 38-2 has a small locker - perhaps 6-8´deep - under the port cockpit seat (basically in the area above the quarter berth). The portion of the seat that forms the lid of that locker is cored with what looks like luan plywood less than ¼ thick, and the edge of the plywood is actually exposed at the back edge of the lid. The hinge hardware that pierces the core was not sealed well (thought the installation IS almost 41 years old) so the core is rotting and water seeps through the lid into the locker. No standing water in the locker, there are drain holes in the teak side of the locker that supports the lid, but all the items in the locker are chronically wet after a rain storm. And there is not much air flow to dry stuff out. One of my winter projects is to remove the lid, replace the core, and make sure the hardware is properly bedded and goes through solid glass. The lazarette on the starboard side of the cockpit has a similar arrangement for the lid, but the small amount of seepage that probably happens goes right into the bilge and has not shown any evidence of water accumulating.

Does anyone else get water in their cockpit locker? I don't see how it can get in there from the basic design. It seems to be damp in there most times and it makes no sense.
