My heater is leaking. I made sure all the connections were tight. It appears the leak is coming from the heater core, itself. The previous owner said he had the core replaced. The leak is just too bad. I want to leave the heater in tact, for later fixing, but for this summer, I want to disconnect it. Turning the valve on top of the motor, dosent stop it from leaking. Can someone give me the, how to, on how to stop the water from going to the core and leaking all in the boat??

I've never done it, but I think there is a way to disconnect the 2 hoses going into the core and connect them together. Please verify on your own, but could be as easy as a trip to your local hardware store.

Find the heater core and remove both hoses from the core. Then get a hose bard to connect them together. All done!

Or disconnect the incoming hose form the heater and connect it to the block where the return hose normally connects.

Are they at the fuse block or on the unit?

Disconnect each hose from the core and join them together. Sorry I forgot to tell you that yesterday.
