    Default Epoxy, Silicone ?

    I have a leak at the back of my grate where the loader sets in. I have used 5200, Which stayed on except on the rear portion. I have used epoxy and still no luck, it seals until i make a run and it blows right off. Does anyone have a solution ? This is the part of the actual jet where it meets the bottom of the boat.

    Any pics of the actual area where the leak takes place? Marine Tex expoxy putty is mighty strong stuff, but it needs something clean and roughed up a bit to "bite" onto.

    Are you refering area surrounding to the intake casting in the bottom of the hull , time pull it to re-set /re-bed it Tom

    If the quick fixes don't work, it's time to reset the intake. Chances are the cracks are oil impregnated, and will never seal good again.

    I'm afraid you guys are right, I will try one more time and then it will be time to re-do it. This all started after having it beached all day in the channel at Havasu. I don't know if this could have caused it, but it never leaked before that day.
