Yes it does. I'm not bothered about 1 cm - that can be sponged out quite easily. However, 10-15 cms will go down the underdeck conduit and flood the engine box.
If some 'helpful' individual decides to lower my trunks (as happened last year) then the battery runs flat pumping out what comes in on the deck, and the boat floods. Once the battery is flat then it just goes through and flood the engine box. If I can keep the level to 1-2 cms then my engine box will remain nice and dry...
...and it rains a lot in Wales.
