Question 3100SE - engine room water ingress

Hi Maxum experts!
We have a 2004 3100SE and are getting fresh water into the engine room on both Port and starboard bilges whenever it rains or we wash down the boat. I cannot see where the ingress is coming from. Any ideas?
Many thanks,
Paul

Had to say. Try using a hose to wet down small areas at a time until you get water in the bilge.

Smile Many thanks!

Thanks Mike,
Tried that but I just cannot seem to find the point of ingress. I was wondering if it might be the radar arch or blower/engine ventilation ports?

With boats it could be any that you mentioned or other sources. While some models can have a common leak most leaks differ from boat to boat. Good luck.
