Easiest way is to pull boat out and watch where the water leaks back out from for future reference.



Most likely now coming in from prop shaft or rudder housing would be the first two places I'd be looking. But first I would check all hoses and connections to ensure nothing popped lose. Could be completely unrelated to the ding and just blew a hose or something.

Gotta watch out for the floating debri islands on Louden. A good reason why I stay on n Tellico. Sorry to hear about the damage. Aren't the bilge pumps wired around the cut off switch? If not sounds like a mod worth doing.

That much water leaking should not be too hard to find. Seeing as it leaked while sitting you would be rudder or prop seal or inlet hose to engine or ballasts. It would not be an exhaust hose leak unless it is running.

Thanks for all the feedback.

Going to pull her out of the water tonight and start tracking down the leak.

I did not realize that OJ props was just down the highway, they're giving me a cash deal on a new prop and are going to rework my old one for free. Going with the OJ 848 15'x14'

Will update once I've identified the leak source.

When you pull her out, and she's dry. Fill the bilge with some water from the hose. See if it comes leaking out.

The 848 is what I got last year after I hit a log. It works good. At least you can get yours redone. Mine was trashed.

Driveshaft seal it is.

I could hear water trickling in when boat was in water, and could see a fairly steady stream coming out below shaft when boat was pulled out of water.

Will try and tighten packing, but is this something you would be comfortable waiting to fix until off season?

After further discussion with the marina manager that pulled my boat out of water, there was a chunk of wood still lodged into the prop.

The prop damage is barely noticeable.

I'm assuming the vibration from the wood chunked prop is what affected my seal.

After speaking with Eric at OJ, my seal should be dripless, so I'll be picking up a new one of those as well.

Also, your bilge pumps should be wired to your battery, not your battery switch. Sounds like you got pretty lucky.

Replacing Rudder housing

I also hit a submerged log, damaged the prop and replaced that. Boat is leaking and just discovered it is coming from the base of the rudder housing...guess the rudder took a hard hit too. I have a '94 Prostar 205 and need to replace the rudder housing - I think - any quick parts list I need for that model year, and pointers on how to do it and/or what I should watch out for? Looks like 4 bolts and some sealant is needed. Thanx
