Thanks guys for your responses. I took out the back seat, back cover and tried to find where the water is coming in from. At first I thought it was swim step supports.. recently replaced and it may be to some degree.. They were caulked with 5200 and Im pulling the boat to recaulk them this weekend. All the other locations have been checked and nothing. I sponged the bilge dry and saw water coming in from around the rudder. caulked inside and out as well as bolts and nuts. I can leave the boat in our slip at night and have 10-12 seconds of water bilged in the morning. Looked at the mufflers.. dry. I am really stumped.. its not a lot of water but it drives me nuts. Packing nut is brand new and professionally installed. How much water if any.. do you guys get in your boat?
thanks.
