« on: March 09, 2015, 11:46:47 AM »
hi all..well noticed last few trips that when I pull the bungs at end of fishing day that theres a lot more water coming out than should... :'(ive looked under the boat and cannot see any holes...bungs rubber are good..so I filled the boat with the hose this morning to see if I could see any leaks water escaping anywere....I couldn't see anything till water started coming out of live well black tap at back of boat just from the tap not the join..so would there be a hole in the pipe and would that be enough to let water into the boat..threw the tap.??????? I really have no idea were to start..and im not mechanical minded....and the closet boat shop is roughly a hour or so....ANY HELP

It could be Brett.  The whole idea of a boat is to keep the water on the outside.  When they start getting water on the inside, something is normally broken.  Most times, this has something to do with the live well.  Is that the drain hose or the fill hose for the well?  Try shooting some water into the hose from the outside under pressure and see where it ends up.

My live well makes a great lure storage area.
