R40 - Water in engine room!

Don't know if this is unique to my boat (2019 R40 Coupe) but I thought I would post this in case it could happen to other owners.

As you can see from the pictures attached water has got into the top of the engine room, completely soaked the sound insulation had collected in the bilge - (I then found out the bilge pumps weren't working but that's another story!)

The culprit is the draining hole from the cockpit into the storage under the rear seat - for some reason Bavaria put the draining hole directly above a hole for the water pipes for the BBQ which leads directly into the top of the engine room.

Why did they do this????

Anyway, I have now tapped up the hole carrying the BBQ pipes so no water can get in - problem solved easily but very annoying such a simple thing can be overlooked.

Rant over :)

My R40 also has the BBQ option, I am going to verify how the pipes are installed. Please post your pictures, for some reason they were not attached.

Hi

Added the photos again but there is an error message saying board quota has been reached.

If you still need let me know your email address and I can send them to you.

Best

I will verify the installation to figure this out.
