    The older boats dont have the fins, they have a deeper fiberglass wedge that gave them stability. The deeper wedge makes the boat keep some of the water in the middle of boat.
    My cooler drains into boat too, plus people getting in and out of boat. Ballast fittings in center locker are older style(Waterbed fitting) and need replaced.
    The bilge pump does not get all of it out. I think some of it is held between ski locker and engine bay.

    I've got this exact same problem. I have the factory ballast in the ski locker, and the ski locker sack also fills the bow sack that I put in. Seems like evry time I use the ballast, there is at least 3 inches of water in the ski locker. I have the drain in the back of the ski locker plugged, so it keeps it all in. I've tested everything I could for leaks (ski locker sack, ballast fittings, hoses, pump) and even changed out the factory Rule pump with Tsunami, and still get water in there. It's not coming from the docking lights, that I can say for certain. I can't for the life of me figure out where it's coming from.

    The only thing I can think of is when I'm filling the ski locker sack/bow sack, the front fitting on the ski locker sack just get so jammed up in the locker and it allows water to pump out... other than that I've got nothing as everything else tests out good.

    Damn water gets nasty, as does the sack, so I vaccuum it out every time...

    Ok, went to cover boat yesterday after weekend at the lake. Lift the center rear seat over the Transmission and drive to check for water since I installed the new bilge pump, No water Bone dry. The plug I got to plug ski locker was too small so I did not use it. Open ski locker and it has about 2 inches of water. So I break out the shop vac and start sucking it out. The water kept coming from the hole from back of the boat. Everything around bilge was empty.
    So WHERE did all the water come from? Is water pooling under gas tank or is there another area that holds water between bilge and ski locker. Does water go under the gas tank somewhere? IDK gonna try to find where its coming from next time back from lake.
