    Default leaky ballast bags

    Does anyone else get some drips out of the rear bags-I tightened the screws as tight as I could get them (I think they are plastic so I dont want to over tighten and break)
    and the carpet gets damp. I leave the rear doors open for a few hours and it dries but Im sure after some time it will mildew. Any suggestions?

    Use teflon tape on the fitting threads.

    Or any good thread sealer compound. If you don't ever want to take them apart, you could epoxy them also. Lucky for me, mine don't leak.

    I was wondering because I lived only 10 minutes from joe buttafucoe and amy fischer now lives in long beach ny.

    It's a boat. That may just be condensation or water dripping from above. When you get a coke at burger king it sweats right? Plastic will do that to a certain extent. I usually put the cover on my boat then run a fan inside the boat for the night to dry things up to keep that mildew out.
