Taking on water
« on: August 05, 2004, 08:51:52 PM »
We are taking on water around the lower unit. they tell me that the wood in the back is bad. Can it be repaired?
I can not see for sure where the water is coming from.
What I can see is that the water is running of the exsaust Y on the right side at the bottom. But I do not see any water running from trhe upper part of the unit.
Thanks for the input of those who responded.

Hey,,
       Have you checked the boot at the back of the boat?A friend of mine had a small hole in his and his Mark Twain was half full of water after one night of sitting in a slip....Hope this helps......

I had the same problem, rotten transom.  I have replaced the transom and the entire floor system.  My problem (which was solved with prayer, a big screwdriver, and a pry bar) was the cap would not fit when I tried to put it back on.  Even though it is now on, did anyone have a similar problem and knows a possible cause?

kdauman, did you do all this work while it was on the trailer or on blocks? I was thinking maybe when you removed eveything and put it all back together, the hull might have been twisted or something like that. I\'m no expert, just a thought. Chris :O

Chris,

It was on the trailer.  I did not lift the top off and hang it, I left it propped  (sp) on the front of the hull.  I think it splayed the bow.  I mismeasured the floor stringers so I had to cut the floor of the walk thru so the top would at least come down.  All is somewhat well, I am putting the rub rail on.  We shall see.......

Depending on boat, the y exhaust pipe can be rotted out and water coming in through the y pipe.  Your post was not clear if the y pipe was leaking
