    Default Cockpit and tonneau cover leaking...

    8 gallons of water.....just pumped 8 gallons of water with my shop vac after a heavy rain on my new Mondo. Kind of a lot..and every thing was dry before the rain, so it's not coming from seals or ballast...

    And both cockpit and tonneau cover were in place....my dealer even made some mod to the overs so both fresh air intake are covered...

    Anyone has experience something like that?? And what dud you do to correct it??

    Thanks!!

    The covers are not 100% water proof.. so if the water sits on the cover it will seap through..if I don't put the poles up in mine I will pool water and I'll get lots of water in my boat as well

    It runs down the windsheild under the snaps into the boat, a full mooring cover is the answer if it stays in the weather a lot, or get a cheap Walmart full cover for temporary use.

    If you store your boat outside, you should always pull your drain plug out.

    With my obv the drive sloped the wrong way so the water went to the bow area even with the jack as high as possible, and the water pooled in the bow, no plug up there. With the mojo and mondo it should slope better towards the drain plug.

    Just remember to put plug in prior to launch

    Where is it pooling so the bilge pump does not empty it?

    Ok, DON'T pull the drain plug if it's in the water. But, you need to check that bilge pump ASAP! I've seen moombadaze and kaneboats LSV's endure hour long downpours at my place and the bilge pumped out most of the water. Never did we see 8 gal left in the bilge. A mooring cover would also help.

    Had so much water a few weeks ago the water was up to the carpet floor. The gas tank actually push up the floor.

    The automatic bilge wasn't working..
