Got a problem. I have a 1994 Maristar and the caulking is coming off of the rear where the swim platform is located. when the boat is sitting in the water and if someone sits on the platform it makes kind of a gurgling noise like when you hold a bottle under water and the water goes into the bottle. Would this water just go into bilge? because I have noticed that there is water in the bilge when i open the engine hatch. Never a lot maybe a couple of inches deep. But I don't think there should ever be any water in it. Is that water probably from the back of the boat and would re-caulking that area fix the issue??

Thanks

There will be water in the bilge, water lubricated everything on a boat and water will come into the bilge.
