Com-pac 16 leak

This is a photo of the interior of the bow of a com-pax 16 that I am going to look at tomorrow. Any thoughts? It looks like a lot of caulk was applied behind the boy eye--I'm thinking possible leak issues. How bad could this be? Could I be facing some extensive repairs?

Re: Com-pac 16 leak

It probably was leaking. And they just put a bandaid(caulk) on it.

Shouldn't be an extensive repair. Remove it, clean the surfaces inside and out. Reinstall with a proper sealant, inside and out. I'd make sure there is a small backing plate to spread the loads if you plan to use it.

If the holes are enlarged because of past movement, I would fill and drill new holes to reduce that. It will keep water out much longer if it doesn't move when force is applied to it.

I have to do the same repair to a ski boat I just bought.

Re: Com-pac 16 leak

Does anyone know what the hulls of com-pacs are cored with? I know the deck is cored with a material that makes it fairly resistant to water damage. I wonder if any leaking at the bow eye could've caused structural damage to the hull core...

The Com-Pac Yacht Owners site is full of great info. If you search there you will certainly find this info. Lots of great people over there.
