    Default help needed with the pump intake on a 1994 21ft daytona

    so i just got started on this boat was gone put the motor in this week but was looking at the pump intake and noticed a ton of silicone around the front of the intake inside the boat, pulled it back and a big chunk of the expoy came with it, looked a little harder and found there is a wood spacer between the intake and the bottom of the boat. so it is fiberglass, then layer of expoy,then the wood space about 3/4 of a inch then more expoy then the intake. ive never had a intake out but this dose not seem right to me?????
    it looks like the intake is leaking, so im gone pull the intake, but what should i do about the wood spacer? ill see if i can get a good pic of it up.

    remove the intake and glass in the area where the wood was then reset the intake.

    Default intake

    That same area was a little thin on mine too. Added aboput 1/2 inch of glass to the area for strength and to fill in. Was too much apoxy for me, and started leaking.

    Post up pics, sounds like it needs to be reset. Alot of installers use wood in the front like that, I'm not a fan of that. Pull the intake and check for cracks along the sides of the intake in the corner of the reliefs or notches, very common on the 21's that they need some basic glass work done to reinforce, especially if it's a setback deal. You can make them bulletproof if done right.

    I think the wood is under the flange of the intake, some installers did that, probably to save epoxy. Every Rogers I ever worked on had that done when they built the boat.

    Default update

    got home late last night spent way to much time to get the two tons of silicone off the transom plates, pulled the pump out, removed all the intake hardwere, started lifting up on the intake with a floor jack and the intake poped out with no problems. im glade i found this before i put the motor in, i think it was held in just by the bolts. whats the rule of thum on epoxy thickness?

    still working on the pics......
