    I've noticed the carpet is wet behind my observer's seat after a long surf session. When I'm really loaded down, I think water trickles in through the rub rail and runs back to the bilge. Maybe...

    Thanks for the info! I live in North Austin, but my boat is on 620 so we'll probably go the southern route.

    How deep is the Perd on average? Is it deep enough to surf, or just wakeboard/ski?
