There are many threads throughout the forum that deal with this problem and are very informative. If you click on the "show posts" and bring up all posts from the last two years, you'll find what you are looking for.

I have read just about every one regarding water penetration and without knowing exactly where and how much water you have it i hard to rec. a solution. The majority of the posts say to drill small holes to assist in draining the water.

Just out of curiosity, where do you store the boat, inside/outside, do you experience much freezing in the winter?

Oh, forgot to ask, which screws did you remove? Have they been their since original purchase, or where they removed, then replaced?

The screws were removed from aft deck. I had them holding gas tank in place under seat. Drilled hole next to drain plug and get slow drip from it. The boat is stored outside and covered.
The new guy "ME" found the FAQ's today. Will look back as far as threads go and see what I can find.
Thanks so much. I'm off to do some reading.
