    Leaky 785's

    Okay so I have managed to take care of most of the "shortfalls" that come with the 97 hull.

    There is still the issue of the possible leaky hull. Mine hasn't been in water yet but I don't want to back er in and find out it leaks like a siv.

    Now, I have bought the most bad ass bilge pump available, so that should help but I was just wondering if there are any fixes for any inherent problems there might be in the bonding of the top deck to the bottom?

    absentx: Were are you leaky problems comming from? What i like to do is fill the hull with water an tilt it back on the trailor. This will give you a good idea as to were you leaks are comming from. You can see if you leaking at the transom to pump mateing, bearing shaft support, an drain plug. I had a leaky drain plug an found out that way last year. Hope this helps dude!!!

    For any "normal" or "typical" areas of leakage I'd contact Randy when he gets back from vacation. I think he also has a kit to remove the water from the inner layers of the hull........................or is that the dogone Octane??

    Octane Al. My buddy had to call him up on a bunch of info on the octane. We had to strip out the hull an basically reseal everything. It was one leaky ass boat. Especially above the stern end were to hull joins.
