Trim Tab Bracket ?
Ski has been taking on water this season. Never had a problem with water in the hull before. I was sure it was gonna be the "infamous" pump shoe bolts/inserts. Left water in the hull to see where it leaks out from. Turns out it must be one of the trim tab bolts leaking. Water comes down the inner edge (ride plate side) of the trim tab. Definately not a ride plate insert. Checked the parts finder on the other forum and there's a "packing" listed for all eight of the trim tab bolts, between the bracket and the hull. Bolts are good and tight, not spinning. Replaced OEM tabs with Jim cut R&D's last summer. Possibly leaking since then but must be getting worse. I have not torn apart yet to confirm what I'm seeing from the outside.
Anyone ever hear of this before? My plan is to run some 5200 around the bracket and between the bracket and the hull. Sound like a plan to you guys?
