    So as i have been tearing my boat apart and it seems that there is a lot of water in the bow of the boat which i cant see? I took out a screw that was holding a wire around the engine and water started dripping out?

    Is this normal?
    How would the water be getting in? There isnt any holes in the boat except a chip in the side?

    Should i cut a hold in the floor to see how much water is in it?

    where was the screw again? And where is the water leaking from?

    You said near the engine, yet talk of water in the bow? The engine's in the stern.

    Sorry yea that post didnt make much sense.

    It seems the water is in the HULL. The water is dripping out of a screw which was used to hold wires under the motor in the stern. The screw was holding on a black wire tie which was holding the wires. Once i took the screw out it basically went thru the fiberglass into the hull so now since there isnt any screw in the hole the water is dripping out.
