      The ski locker is the lowest point on the boat, so if any water leaks... that’s where it ends up. There is a plug that goes in the back of the locker compartment you can put in to keep the water out. Assuming the water is coming from the engine area.

      Ya I get a ton of water collecting in my ski locker; and while my cover is decent, it still leaks quite a bit of water when it rains.  The floor looks dry by the time I take off the cover but there is still water in the ski locker. I bought my boat with a ballast port plumbed into the ski locker drain so I can't get water out of there easily... so I go hunting for hills so the water will drain past the gas tank to the stern drain. 

      I agree with what's been said- drain all the water out, close everything up, then watch again for leaks.

    • To remove the plastic around the gauges I see three screws on top, how many more screws under the dash do I need to remove to get this out

      Check that the steering block upstream of the rudder is secure and the aluminum cable nut is tight.  Also check bolt/nut holding cable end to tiller is tight.  Under the helm there should be 4 bolts that hold the rack to the steering pinion, make sure they are tight.  If it's still loose, then you might have damage in the rudder bushings.

      thank you, will do, I will let you know what I find

      Thanks Cole2001

      Bilge and ballasts empty.

       

      One of my other questions or thoughts is why Malibu doesn't add weight to level boat from the factory...
