yes, up in northern MI, this was the first chance I have had to splash the boat. Spent a nice COLD weekend up in Leland, MI in a slip. Seeing that it was the first time out, had to check and double check to make sure things were going as supposed to (first full season with the boat for us). Boat ran great! One issue that I noticed is that when I would check the bilge, there was alway a little bit of water in it. Enough that a few times, especially when shifting weight in the boat, it would be enough for the bildge to kick on and pump out for about 15sec or so. before putting it in the water, bilge was completely dry with boat leaning aft in driveway, plug pulled. Plug reinserted with teflon tape and closed tightly. Is it normal for some water to appear in the bilge? What are some common areas of concern or sources? I looked with a flashlight, but could not find the source. the only reason I think this may be "normal" for this boat is when I changed out the fresh water impeller, the bottom hose had a "film line" where it appeard it had sat partially submerged in water. That line runs on the bottom side of my motor, practically laying on the floor in my bilge. All other water fittings (fresh water system) were checked without any leaks noted. Hull is in great shape, no bottom paint. Ideas? Not worry about it? I see other boats bilges kick on while being slipped on occasion??? Thanks.
