Thread: Tiny leak on my RXP.

Tiny leak on my RXP.
I have had water seeping out of the fiberglass directly under the waterbox since i noticed it in march 2005. I have no idea how the water is getting in there, but I did have some work done to my cracked and leaking pump shoe area over the summer.
I was thinking of drilling a small hole on both sides of the ski right in the area marked to let the water out and plugging it when I go riding. The hole would be only on the inside of the ski, not all the way through the ski.

You see those rivets holding the waterbox bracket on?
Water is getting inbetween the double layered hull thru those rivets.

I wouldn't worry about it.
I actually drilled out my rivets and the water came out. I let it dry out really good and then filled the rivet holes with some epoxy.
I didn't want the extra weight of the water between the hull layers.
There was actually very little water that came out anyway.

he got water in between because he had a leak at the pump thru hull fitting.
you can see water weep out of rivet holes, etc. if you have water in there.
