MA 18 livewells filling with seacocks closed?

Recommended Posts

Is it normal for the livewells to fill even with the seacocks closed and just sitting at rest?  I test rode a MA last week and both wells had water coming in from the livewell drains, which were unplugged, even sitting at rest.  The seacocks were closed, and you could visibly see the water coming in from the large drain holes.  Is this normal???

Yes, it's normal. Seacocks control the inlets. Drains need to be plugged to keep the water out. Plugs available on Mbggear.com.

X2, even better is to put an inline valve.....it will push up through the drain at rest or slow speeds....

As said above, yep normal. Bottom of main well is below the water line so water will come, the port side is prolly above the water line until a person walks back there. But plugs will keep water out.
