They were sure there would be some water in there so I got a plug. When I drilled the hole there was some water in there.

Nah, had this happen several times. All the holes in my console are above the tube level. It is just a bit of a pain when all the kit starts floating around and heads over the side, got to empty the boat while hanging onot everything so as not to lose it

Nearly happened with a spare fuel tank I was carrying last year. I have a large on deck storage box now and the only thing that floats away is my crew .
