  1.  Comments:  
          It does not appear that the draining of water from the quarters into the battery wells is desirable or necessary in view of the availability of tanks to receive such water.  Further, in this type of vessel there is no sump to take a suction from the pump room or battery well, so that water draining into these spaces cannot be evacuated as it should be.
