On my 2510, there is a limber hole (drain) that goes from the anchor
locker, all the way through the forward bilge, under the fuel tank, and
exits in the rear bilge. Every year during winterization, I pull the
anchor rode and coil it into a 5-gal bucket, and then flush the anchor
locker with a garden hose. As long as I have the bow high enough so
that water runs to the back, the water runs the full lenght of the boat
and out the drain in the transom.

Someone will have to confirm that this is the case with the 23 hull
also.
