I hae a 2001 310 Da. I have been getting alot of water in my bilge but only on the Port side. My engine room has three compartments... One Starboard, one channel in the middle and one Port. The center and starboard are bone dry but the port keeps filling up. It seems to fill more while up and running but will also fill slower while just sitting in my boathouse. I've had the sterring arm seals done last year. The only thru hull fitting it that part of the bilge is for my chartplotter and I've pulled the boat, taken it out of the hull and re-sealed it. I have tightened all my hose clamps. Twin 454 MPI's with FWC

Re: Water Leak
I have had a slow leak in my boat that was ending up in the bilge. Was pulling my hair out trying to figure it out. Recently I had a shifter cable problem that we isolated to the outdrive. When we pulled the outdrive to fix the problem the gasket directly behind the outdrive was completely shot and there was obviously water where the drive goes in. We fixed shifter cable issue replaced gasket and no water. Needless to say had the shifter cable problem not occurred I would still be pulling my hair out trying to find this leak.
