Replying to:Water Leak
Help andadvice is needed . I have just spent 5 months completely restoring a MK1 RL from a derelict condition,launched last weekend and boat went great, lived up to my expectations BUT a bad water penetration appearing at the rear section under the cockpit floor in the area behind the "Stringer" below the cabin entry. water also appeared inside the storage area under both quarter berths although this was not a sinificant amount. We completely replaced the "Bulk" heads at the front of the outboard well area and made sure these were heavily glassed due to being a wet area.The only explanation I can come up with is the Keel Plate housing must be leaking, the pressure of the water must be travelling between the inner and outer mouldings and coming through where bunk mouldings are glassed to the hull although there appears to be no obvious breakdown areas of the glassing.The above really put a dampner on the day as the water was not noticed until it showed up on the cabin floor. Has any one else experienced this type of leak and what steps were taken to fix.
