  • PVC pipe filled with water

    I have several pieces of pvc pipe coming up in the following places through my floor.

    Each side has rod holder inserts with teak rod holders and both have approx 1" pvc coming up from inside the hull. I also have two 3" pvc pipes coming up inside my console from underneath. All have water inside of them. Where do these things drain? Are they all connected so I might have one common blockage point? They are not flush with the floor so are they drains at all or just ventillation?

    These are conduit or raceway for rigging. They should not have water in them. These are used to run wiring or hoses. If you look in the bilge you will see them just under the floor. The ones under the rod holders are sometimes used for VHF radio antenna wiring.

    Hope this helps.

      you mean those 3" pipes under the console have NO wires exiting?

      Use any thing a plumber might use, or a fish tape, coat hanger, hose, etc, it might hopefully be blocked near the console, if so, you'll see the reason in your bildge..if wires come out of the pvc, you need to do this yesterday. Use a high pressure hose, both sides, no plumber's tools. Wart will have more. good luck., Mark

        No, no, I have two cable raceways in addition to the other two pvc pipes coming up inside the console. The ones in the rod holder boxes make sense for VHF cables but the other two don't. I know about the two raceways going to the back, in fact I had to run a new gas line this past weekend through one of them. Hmmm, tomorrow I will take some pics and show everyone. I will also try and run a fish tape through them to unclog if that is the problem.

          Perhaps its a drain pipe that someone previously cut away...

            Actually, thanks to a post on here I figured it out. It is my conduits for running cabling to each gunwhale. They must have filled with water when I was cleaning out the boat. Now I just need to drain them!
