Checked out my silicone re-seal job on the bilge thru-hull fitting for the engine water pick up. No good. Really need to seal from the outside. To the boat shop she goes. This would be a really easy fix if the pickup weren't directly over a bunk.

Lower your trailer tonge as much as possible. Build two tiers or supports under the rear of the boat, as near the hull as possible. Raise the tongue to lower the rear of the trailer, leaving a working space between the trailer and the hull / fitting. Re-fit / seal the fitting...

Yes / no / maybe? Worth a try??? Typically get good results on a single axle trailer. Dual axle results may vary. That being... I'd build a platform, jack up the rear of the boat and scotch it off while working in the open space between the trailer and hull....

I thought about this but i am very nervous to try it. Local shop also suggested purposely trailering tilted to expose the pickup. Neither sounds fun to me. I think i will be going the shop route. Thank you for the suggestion. Our trailer IS a tandem so results might not be great anyway.

Think that is the other way around...


Troy, where did you get your oil and mineral spirits? Which brands did you go with?

I installed my four rear speakers under the rear jump seat.



I got a set of Polk speakers to fit underneath the new seat base.

Looks great Footer! I take my seat out too many times to have installed speakers like this, great use of space!
