    I was cleaning my boat the other day after fishing and noticed water seeping from the plug on the side of the ski locker, not the rear drain plug but the ones on the sides, popped them out and some water came out, the foam is a bit wet. Also when I parked my boat bow down some water seeped into the front storage hole, at the furthest point bow side, beneath the trolling motor, I vaccumed it out and it seeped again, to the same level. How exactly would I check to see if I'm holding water and how do you get to the foam in these boats as the floor under the seats is fiberglass. Thank for any help and hello, new member! :)

    Welcome to CSR.

    Never park your boat with the bow down for that very reason. Always make sure the bow is raised so any water can run out the back of the boat through the transom plug. Additionally if it's left outside it could fill with rain if left with the bow down.

    I would get the boat in the correct position, pull the plug and catch the water dripping out to see what it looks like. I'm pretty sure your boat has wood stringers and transom which might be sucking up the water.

    Ok. She's now up and drained a little bit of water. I could've swore these boats had no wood in the hull except the transom. Hmmm.
