Hi all, I finally got my boat
down to me only to find that is has a slow steady leak! The bilge pump
runs once per minute or so. We checked all the seacocks and thru hulls etc. It is running back from the bulkhead. All toilet thru hulls and hoses are fine and it's totally dry under the front water
tank too. You can first see the water
where you remove the floor board in front of the toilet...and all the way back to the bilge pump
It is a 1977 Irwin
30 that a guy (I will not mention here) removed the compression
post to fix some shoddy fiberglass work
to repair this problem in Kemah
. Well, he obviously did not fix it, When the center floorboard is removed all we see is fibergless that he installed.It goes from one side to the other. I cut the floorboards on each side to see what was there...nothing.
Does anyone have an original Irwin
30 who can send me a picture of the bilge
under the long center floor board? Where are the keel
bolts(it's a centerboard
boat)? I cannot see anything with all the fiberglass
they have added...
I'll try to add pix tomorrow...
Any suggestions as to fixing this? Can I fiberglass the keel
to the hull
to remedy this?
I am going nuts with this! Thanks in advance...
