Rain water seeping into wells

I have a 22' Outrage that gets rain water accumulation in the below deck wells. Is there any cure for this? I am tired of manually pumping out the wells. Do you know anyone who has converted the covers to newer styled plastic water tight hatches? Does anyone know who makes them?
Thank you for your thoughts.

What year is your outrage? Which wells, bow or stern?

Not familiar with the OR22, but my OR18 has overboard drain tubes in the front locker and the below deck gas tank well. The plug in the fron anchor locker is obvious, but the you need to remove the round access cover to get to the drain for the below deck area. Your OR22 probably has the same arrangement.

I think you are referring to the stern baitwell hatch/teak non-guttered cover? You don't have it if you have the large tank, I think. If so, it is wet and a hassle, though my son enjoys pulling the plug while underway. Incidently, mine did not come with a check valve in the splashwell. I may also try to cover it with a hatch. Look into the Bomar hatches. I haven't sized it yet.
My anchor and two rope lockers, the plugs stay out unless there are cans in there being chilled/endurance tested.

Thank you for your help, I will check out the site. Oh, the whaler is a 1988 22' Outrage with whaler drive. Yes, it does have the drains in the anchor well and rear well. But, it fills up with water when left open.

Don't order any of the Bomar hatches etc. to replace the teak lid for the rear livewell in the '89 etc. Outrages with 77 gal tanks.
They are too small. Neither Beckson nor Viking fit either. Back to the drawing board. Maybe a custom Starboard job will have to do. Any other sources out there?

I have a 1988 22 outrage I had to put in automatic pumps on both sides and under the big well in the front. Now I put a automatic in the live well and so it pumps out the side. doing that it has helped greatly. great whalering.
