Have you ever seen this video?

Sounds like you have it fixed, but after watching this, it seems very possible to get lots of water from the rub rail when motoring along just below planing speed.

You would think that would be covered under sometype of lifetime hull warranty!

thats exactly what i was afraid mine was doing because the back deck sits at or below the water line when underway..But luckily its just the speedo cables opening and hopefully a little clean up and sealer will do the trick..

I fixed mine in 2010. I removed the rub rail and insert. drilled out the deck fasteners...most were loose. On my 95 they used rivets. I put 3m 5200 adhesive in all the holes and put all new rivets in. Waited a week and then re-installed the rub rail and insert. The I ran a beat of the 5200 along the deck hull union. All in all took me about 4 hours of real work. Longest part of job was drilling out old rivets - cuz they wanted to spin when I drilled and re-installing the rub rail. Re-installation of rub rail is not hard - took about an hour.

Amazing to see how much water can come in underway. Thats why we have a grand canyon. WATER ALWAYS WINS. GREAT REPAIR THANKS FOR THE PICS.
