I've had my 2004 35 CB for about a year and a half, and she always sits a bit down by the head - not a lot, but definitely not level. Fuel tanks full or not full, water collects along the back of the cabin, more or less equally port and starboard so there doesn't appear to be a list. The tendency of water to collect at the forward end of the cockpit means that the drains around each of the 4 cockpit deck hatches don't drain aft to the scuppers in the transom. I suspect this is the reason there's always water in the bilges, because it overflows the curbing around the hatches and falls into the bilges. The hoses from those hatch drains may also be clogged, and I plan to try to clear them all out in the spring.
Is this a class/design problem? Has anyone come up with a solution, or will I just have to be comfortable that there will always be water in the bilges?
For 32, 32+2, 35, and 45 owners.
