Recently undertook a Mk v restoration project and have been heavily utilizing the site. So a brief thank you to all those whom have contributed.

Noted in the black arts section there was some commentary about a recess in the earlier Mk v's that's allowed for water to collect just forward of the main bulkhead. Apparently this defect was addressed in later models by the addition of a drainage hole. Has anyone completed this repair retroactively?

Any recommendations on size and location? May be a case of a picture being worth a thousand words.

Distant Thunder came equipped with the drain.  It is. braided reinforced 1/2 polythene hose that runs from under the lining in front of the head into the top of the keel sump.  We can' only see the end sticking into the sump.

I have the same issue. Is your hull number correct? I don't think C&C built 500 hulls in the same year.
I'd love to see a picture of the later bilge area

If I'm not mistaken the 5## series denotes the hulls built in Rhode island while the other numbers denote the niagara location.

Generally this corresponds to the "CCY" vs "ZCC" difference.

Believe there is a full thread on the hull number issue but suppose the take away from this is both the early production Canadian and US boats share the same defect.
