2013 X-30 pooling water question

Hey guys. I hope that this subject hasn't been touched on in the forum. What do you guys recommend for the pooling water in the picture below. This is on the port side near the batteries under the passenger seat. Can drilling a hole in the fiberglass solve the problem? I fear drilling into the cross member/fiberglass beam. I also don't want to drill down and puncture the hull.

Looks like a rag can take care of that, seriously thou I wouldn't drill any holes in a brand new boat thats been out just 1 time, contact your dealer and see what they recommend.

hmm, guess my question would be where did the water come from? wet swimsuits, leaking ballast, heater core, ect. once you figure that out you should be able to resolve you issues.

Please don't drill, especially if that is a stringer

The water came from a wash down of the boat. I'm sure that this pooling will continue and constantly using a rag to soak it up doesn't sound like a good option. BTW, I realized that I may have placed this thread in the wrong category, sorry about that guys (and moderator).

There isn't really anything you can do. I also was my boat down after every use (salt water) and water pools all over the place. These boats aren't really meant for that as most lake users don't just hose down their boat (no need). I recommened just taking a rag to it and leave you compartments open in the sun for a few hours to a day after use. Never cover it right after washing it down as you'll get mildew everywhere. Take off that matt on the bottom and it will be easier to wipe that water.

It is similar to deckadence but it has no backing. Possibly the same manufacturer. It is whatever comes with the saltwater package. There is a mix of that material and standard carpet in the area discussed. If nothing can be done to channel the water, nothing can be done right??!?! I guess we will just have to hit it with a rag and let it air dry. Coming from a Malibu that never sealed well around the tower, mildew is a major concern. Not to mention trapped moisture causing corrison. OCD, yes! I assume that a future buyer would prefer an OCD owner.

Totally agree.

Does anyone know why Mastercraft does not incorporate a self bailing system into its boats ?

Self-bailing is Standard on all salt water boats and very effective.
