    Are 38xx bilges connected at some level?-gctid823640

    Just curious if forward bilge will drain into rear at a certain level (and vice versa)

      the two bilges are separate. each has a crew operated electric low water pump

      and an automatic float switch activated electric high water pump.

      if you flooded your engine room bilge with a garden hose, it is not going to fill

      the forward bilge. you might do it in order to test to confirm that the separation

      wasn't modified by a PO. also another reason to do it is to clean-out debris from

      the bilge which can get stuck in the bilge pump impellor. attempts to have a truly

      dry bilge can result in the debris fouling the pump as the last bit of water is pumped out.
