my new ( to me) 98 dauntless 15 has water accumulating in the conduit that holds the steering cables,etc. I checked the drain plug and its tight. Is this normal ? Where could the water be coming from ?

The water is entering from one of two places: beneath the console (at the front of the rigging tube), or at the starboard stern quarter (at the end of the rigging tube. The problem may be reduced (I couln't solve it completely.) by sealing the covers well and applying a rigging boot where the cables exit the tunnel. That may help prevent water's entering the tunnel when you wash the boat.

I have the same concern of water in the hull conduit for a 2003, 170. The drain tubes for the console cupholders were sized wrong and not connected to the cup holders. I made repairs by replacing both lines Sat May 10,2003. The hull was manufactured in June of 02 so probably exposed to lots of rain. I was wondering if the conduit now holds water. How were you able to view the inside of the conduit to determine the extent of water collection.
