No such thing as cheating if it make the job easier.

Calling for rain so no boating.

Spent hours looking into the water leak.

First but her in a work rack to drain the bilge and ran her on the muffs, no sign of water in the bilge.

Then had her put into the water and let her sit for a couple of hours, water in the bilge seemed to be coming from the port side. Big dummy say it's not true, yep it is. I had the boat pulled and back to a work rack, sure enough when I installed the new water heater I had to drill new mounting holes. You got it two small hole all the way through.

Sanded the area and used an epoxy underwater stick to fill them. Calling for rain tomorrow but I took the week off so Tuesday back in the water to see if the repair is good.

You knucklehead.

Although I measured, re-measured, then re-measured again, when I was installing trim tabs on mine I got so paranoid about drilling the first hole I had to walk away from it for an hour. All those holes, all below the water line, was really messing with my mind. First time I ran it after the install I probably checked the bilge a dozen times!

Glad you're back on the water, Mike, and glad the boat is running well. A job well done.

Mike,

I'm sure some of you guys (and gals) may remember when Seapuppy drilled holes through the hull on his brand new Bayliner 350 with less than 2 hours on the engines. If I recall he was trying to install battery straps to hold down his tool box.

These things happen. That is what they make Expoxy for.
