    Mcdye, looks like you're in the clear, at least in the clear as far as the "hole" in the front of the ski locker.

    I think it's interesting - we're 8 pages of posts into this issue, and not one word from SC? Even after they were notified about it, numerous times?? What gives man? I mean, sure, if the newer models are slightly different design, and appear to not have the issue, okay. But what about us with older boats, who are or could be experiencing this problem?

    We on this board represent only a small portion of Moomba and Supra owners, so I can only imagine how many boats out there are seeing this issue. I could see, how Kane explained, that the extra room in the hull area will allow the water to expand and compress the foam without doing any damage, but, I am kind of under the impression that this foam is a rigid type, and not necessarily meant to be repeatedly compressed... and I also agree that I don't really want my hull to be the 'experiement'. Though, it saw freezing temps last winter in storage, and no obvious damage seen - but I am still not sure if I've got the issue yet. Though, obviously, 08's have it too.

    I'm not overly impressed by their lack of response either.

    I agree squeeg333.

    I'm really starting to think an automatic bilge pump installed in this location is the answer. Remove enough foam core to the bottom of the boat, install a 4" PVC pipe with hole's on the bottom or some kind of stainless steel cylinder screen, bracket the pump to the pipe or screen or a sump box may also work.
    A Tsunami Cartridge Bilge Pump 500 GPH would do the job.
    Wire it back to the dash and plum the bilge out the side of the boat. Install a 4" screw - out deck plate in the locker to maintain the pump.

    Just to add, my 07 LSV does this exact same thing. My water came from a 2 hr rain storm pulling the boat home @ purchase. I can actually "almost" get my body into the ski locker on my left side & press into the floor w/ my elbow & see water coming up through the front of the locker like a geyser!

    Well, I got this e-mail from my dealer this morning who heard back from SC:

    "The answer was that it is not a structural issue that would be covered under the limited lifetime warranty of the hull, so it will not be covered under warranty."

    What I don't understand is why they agreed to cover mnpracing's boat but not mine, especially when mnp bought his boat used and I bought mine new (no offense mnpracing).

    mcdye,

    Looks like they fixed this issue in 2010. That looks nice and clean, the way it should have been done in the first place. Compare that to mine which has a bunch of caulk/sealant between the hull and the floor, and strips of hastily placed fiberglass cloth in a half-assed attempt to seal the liner to the hull. It's hard to see here but there is a large gap between the fiberglass cloth and the hull at the very front of the liner. I wish they would have spent the extra 5 minutes and sealed that hole properly.

    Not a structural issue? I guess they designed it to hold water in there then... Yeah, yeah, that's it. It's supposed to hold 60+ Lbs of stagnant water. Makes the boat float and smell better........
