I took the boat to dale hollow for 4 days and kept it in a slip. I noticed after a few hrs I had water in the ski locker and some under the motors. The pump drained it rite out after I turned it on or stood on the swim platform. I checked it each day when I pulled it in and it was empty but after a whi!e there would be some in the ski locker and it would be a few inches deep by morning. I know it's not the plug i replaced it with a brass set up and sealed it all real good. Any ideas? Thanks

Two things come to mind to check, first the carbon seals on the drive shafts very common for those to leak and check the water lines especially the clamps as those will rust and leak . The engine is cooled by a closed loop system but that is not practical for the exhaust system so there are water lines for that. I see hoses falling off the engine quite often .

Thanks for the info! If it ever stops raining here were i can get in the boat and check it out. That gives me areas to look closer at.

I know this is an old thread but why was the bilge pump off? If boat is in the water, bilge pump should ALWAYS be turned on.
