Water in hull....
To those of you that may be getting excess water in your hull.... I had all my cooling lines checked, possible cracks in the hull checked, and every other place water could be getting in. Turns out it was coming from the gasket from the drain plug. So, just wanted to throw it out there as a possible place that water could be getting in. I tightened down the 2 screws that attach the fixed housing to the hull for the drain plugs and the water in my hull went away.

Good tip! I'm sure they are often overlooked.

I checked mine the other day and noticed that they were not that tight at all. Its a bit of a pain that the nut can spin on the inside. I also noticed that the rubber gasket was not in real good shape for only a year old. All of these little things add up.

Simmilar problem happened to me. I caught it before water got in but the drain plug housing (on both sides) cracked like you wouldn't believe. I believe they were DOA (damaged on arrival) and replaced them. I spray a little fluid flim on them now and again to keep them healthy.
If you do have to replace the housing like I had to, get a 9mm wrench and bend it 90* about 1/2 inch from the top using a propane torch. There is almost no other way to access the nut on the housing except by going through the drain plug opening.
