    1. hi..
      yes the enclosure space that accomodates the MSB must be sealed from the deck so that in no circumstances the water from weather deck shall come in or if any pipe line above or near it bursts, then water shall be prohibited from entering the space.

      i will post an article on trips on ae, stay tuned.
      thank you for visiting us :)
