OLD FISHIN' TIPSTER'S
TIPS AND TRICKS


Got a leak in your boat and can't find it?

Well, along comes old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and resident backlash picking champion, with the solution.


How to secure any bolt or screw easily.

Got a leak in your boat and can't find it?? Experience has shown that, the majority of the time, it is probably be associated with the livewell plumbing and not the actual boat, itself.

Another hidden leak location is around the drain plug assembly. I call it an 'assembly' because it is made up of two components: a drain hole liner and a drain plug. You boat has a hole drilled in it at the location of the drain hole. Then, a metal sleeve was inserted (and usually glued) into that hole. If you remove the drain plug and feel inside the hole with our finger, you can feel the smooth surface of the liner. It assures a good. Clean fit for the actual plug. The leak is usually found around the liner and is due to improper sealing or installation, or the liner was bent and not in a perfect circle. You can usually put a little water into the sump of a trailed boat and see this leak as the water drips out, but not always. Sometimes the leak is only one way. When in doubt, take a knife to work the edge of the liner loose a bit and some pliers to pull it out. Clean the hole thoroughly and apply a good marine silicon sealant to it. Then, install a new liner. They are readily available at most all marine parts houses and are a standard size.
