Water pooling inside boat when wake surfing


LX Response

Recommended Posts

We have just started wake surfing in our boat and noticed that a small pool of water gathers in the back corner. We have a bag going across the back (we take the back seat out) and another bag down the side and the water is pooling between the two bags. We have checked both bags and the connections and the water is not leaking from them. The water is not coming over the side either so not sure why it's happening.

It's a 2002 LX Response - has anybody heard of this?

Because of the extra weight that's just your low spot and if your sure it's nor your bags then you need to look elsewhere. When the bags are empty check the bilge. Do you have a similar amount of water? If so, is your shaft seal leaking? You said "small" amount of water. Could it be from skiers getting in the boat?

Not sure if you have ballast plumbed in but is water coming in around the ballast vent/drain ports on the side of the hull? I get a bit of water too and I suspect these ports aren't water tight.

Thanks Dalt1 - I taped up the vents last weekend with a bit of plastic but the water still came through ha ha :)

Ok - we have solved the problem of water pooling in the corner of the boat

You were right BlastRlxi, it was the rubrail. We put some silicon along the rubrail (top and bottom), took the boat out yesterday and we had no water inside the boat. Thanks for the tip!

No problem. Glad it worked out for you.
