    Taking on Water?

    I went out yesterday to take a ride. The water was calm and I rode about 20 miles. I ran a little in WOT but mainly just cruised around. I didn't even splash any water above the hull. When I was done I pulled the rear seat and noticed I took on some water. Maybe a couple of inches. I put it on the trailer and strapped the rear down and backed into the water. I looked and looked and I can't figure where it is coming in at. I was going to fill the hull with water a see if I can see any water seepage. I'm afraid its the carbon seal. Any more suggestions?

    If you still have the factory bailer lines it may be a good idea to check them. Also check all of your hose clamps to make sure they are tight.

    I dought it is anything to do with block offs, thru hull, etc. If they were going to leak they should have leaked the first time out after installation.
    I may be wrong buy i think i know what it is.

    After I installed the RE's I had a leak... I fixed it. After I installed the rideplate, I had a big leak.. I reinstalled it and no leak. I'm fixing to try something.

    Hope it's not your Gibson. Good luck and maybe time for a bilge pump.

    Robbie has one, just not installed, i bet it will be in sooner then latter.
    I was in the same boat, took me several water ingestions to finally install a bilige in both boats.

    There are too many varibles that could create water ingestion. One of my once was the line on the bottom of j pipe came off, so you never know.

    I'm not assuming or suggesting it's the gibson, I was more thinking out loud (so to speak). If it didn't leak into the boat while sitting in the water than it probably isn't. A couple of inches over 20 miles isn't a huge leak but it is significant. I hope he finds it.
