Water in Bilge
Last week I found that the hull/deck joint was leaking some water through the rubrail. I tested this by spraying the garden hose and pulled the plug. Bought two tubes of Boat LifeSeal and liberally applied in the joint. I also resealed around one of the deck drains.
Took the boat out twice this past weekend and still had a few gallons in the bilge at the end of the day. I was running the livewell both days, so that is my next suspected culprit. However, I have stuck my head in the while it was running and haven't noticed any apparent leaks.I believe all of the drains under the deck lids drained overboard or onto the deck. Any other areas I should check? I leave the plug open and the boat is high and dry before launching, so its not an accumulation of rain water.
