I have a second question on my sport. When it is off it's lift and in the water, I notice just a few drops of water accumulating around the center, cocpit drain plug. I think it may not be from the plug, but around that tube the plug fits into. Is this normal? I want to keep every speck of water out of the hull. Should I seal it underneath with epoxy? The boat is totally wonderful. It sits in indoor winter storeage at the moment, wish I was boating.

Ok,I try,
I dont have a 13 I have a 17. a freind has a couple of 13's and an 11, and from the looks of these I would say you should look at the brass tube from below when you have it out of the water and also look through (plug out, boat out of water) and see if any pitting has occured. The plug (if used on the interior side wont stop water from entering the tube it self and cousing the tube to corrode.
You might be able to apply sealent to the underside of the tube area, but you should be considering having the tube replaced.
