Please advise on how to dry out foam in the hull bottom approximately 12" from transom and on starboard side approximately 8" up from keel. The water entered through a one and one eighth inch hole where a factory installed aerator pump is. The way I discovered the leak: 4 small screws holding the pump side of the wall were dripping water. I removed pump and screen. Overnight approximately one gallon of water dripped into bucket from pump holes. Is the foam designed to get wet and dry out? This is my first Whaler. I wonder why I waited so long to get one; it is a super boat. Thanks for any help from Forum members.

If your boat is still under warranty, contact the dealer before you attempt any repairs. Don

Great thought "dgp" if "dauntlass 18" has a Dauntless 18 then it should still be under warranty --- go see your dealer ASAP -- duh -- didn't put two and two together -- Tom
