javafish (2/16/2010)My pontoons have water in them and there is no damage. I believe the bottom has a bad design. It's a Lowe 2006. The very bottom has a v design "crip) of sorts, running the entire length of the boat. This is where water must be getting in. Is there an aluminum boat guru around that can tell me what I need to do? There are plugs in the top of each chamber to remove water with some sort of pump.
If the boat is on a trailer and there is a leak, it should also be leaking out while on the trailer. Won't be coming out as fast as it goes in.
Run the trailer jack up and start feeling for water from the stern going forward.
I think the "v design" on the bottom is merely an aluminum structural angle welded to the bottom of the toons to protect the toons from impact and abrasion damage ??
