    Default <<Water collecting excessivly while boat sits>>

    While i'm hanging out on the shore i seem to be collecting an excessive amount of water in a short time. I have to run the water pump about every hour or so or it fills the entire rear of the boat. If i let it sit overnight without running the pump the entire rear end is filled up, the entire rearend would be sumberged if the shoreline wasn't so level where i beach. What and where do i need to look to see what i need to fix/replace to resolve this issue??

    Next time you trailer it, fill the inside with water and look for where it's coming out. Tilt front up with back down to simulate the conditions you have when taking on water. Works every time!
    Everything electrical has smoke in it.... and it's not done till you let the smoke out!

    Default water leak

    My buddies daytona had the same problem. It was coming in from around the transom plates for the pump. Had to rebuild his plates. Problem fixed. Check that out.

    How old is the hull? Check the epoxy around the intake to hull area. I had the same problem and found it the same way, water around the intake on the inside and watched under boat for leaks Had to remove intake and reinstalled with new epoxy from CP Marine. worked great

    If it's a jet
    Check the packing flange for leaks

    When i bought mine the previous owner said it was getting a little water in it. Got under the boat and there were "oily" drips and stains on the epoxy. Engine crud mixed with water and seeped thru. Had to reset the intake.
