I recently bought an '89 montauk which has been well cared for it's whole life. It was garaged when not in use until just two years ago and has always been covered. I have been reading the many posts concerning water working its way into the hull and wonder if I should be concerned about the small amount of standing water that usually sits in the tunnel for the cables in the hull. I always lift the front to drain as much as possible after I wash it down, but should I be concerned about removing that last inch every time with my wet-vac? The boat is in great shape now and I want to keep it that way. Thanks-

Only if it freezes or is salt water. Regards, Jay

I always flush out the bilge after use, and let it drain from a position as high as the trailer will allow. I stored mine last winter like this, with no apparent problems.
based on what I have read on the forum, the thru-hull drains seem to be a potential problem. I make sure my bow locker is bone dry.
