  1. * UPDATE - STILL LEAKING* Sea chest is leaking

    Well after much head scratching and attempted fixes, the sea chest repair was the one that fixed her! After removing the screen, I cleaned out the screw holes, dried them with hair dryer, squirted Life Seal into each hole and replaced. Next trip to the water, zero leaks! Thank you to this forum for all the the shared knowledge and ideas!
  2. Leak in the bilge. Looking for advice ?

    It is leaking while sitting in the water. I do not use my livewell. Valves are off and tub drains plugged with rubber stoppers.
  3. Leak in the bilge. Looking for advice ?

    Thank you. I looked at that this afternoon and wondered if it could be an issue. My bunks block access to it as well. I may plug the Hull, fill with water and blue dye and check that area out. If they are leaking (I have two livewell pickups there), then I guess I could leave the boat about a foot short on the trailer and do the repair at the ramp.
  4. Leak in the bilge. Looking for advice ?

    Already did that. That is how I found the leak on the thru transom fitting....kinda hard to "See the plumbing" if it is leaking from a fitting under the floor drain. Just was wondering if there was a typical problem area to check
  5. Leak in the bilge. Looking for advice ?

    Boat is a 2008 Pathfinder 2200 XL. Found a leak on starboard side thru transom floor drain fitting. Removed, cleaned (Not fun!) And re-sealed that. That leak is fixed, but there is still water getting into the bilge. Are there any "typical" suspects I should examine to help make the search easier? Hearing bubbling noises on starboard side floor drain in the floor. Wondering if the leak could be occurring at that fitting just under the floor drain. Leak is about 1- 2 gallons per hour max
  6. Pathfinder 2200v scuppers/hoses need replaced

    I just re-sealed my starboard side floor drain thru transom fitting (It was leaking). I did not have a replacement fitting handy so I had to preserve it. This was not an easy task....Pathfinder must have used a pound of 5200 (or it was old, dried 4200). Took 3 hours to get it out using a slide hammer...boat is a 2008 Pathfinder 2200XL. Still have a small leak somewhere on the starboard side....search continues. Leaks are NOT fun!
  7. Sorry, i just saw you had the T top....still seems slow for that set up though
  8. I have a 2008 2200XL with a 200HPDI. I have a Mercury 21.5 Bravo 1FS on it. With 3/4 fuel, trolling motor on the bow, 2 people and 3 batteries, I hit 54mph at 5500 RPM yesterday.....not sure why that 250 SHO is not performing better than that. Makes no sense to me. Try the same prop I am using....motor all the

Try the same prop I am using....motor all the way down on jack plate and trimmed out slightly. That set up should scare 60 IMHO....
  10. Yeti Cooler Tie Downs

  11. Yeti Cooler Tie Downs

    The new Yeti tie down mounts are much more flush to the deck now. Drill shallow pilot holes, dip screws in 5200 and mount cooler after 5200 cures.
  12. 2300 hps props?

    You may want to try a Mercury Bravo 1 FS in a 23 pitch.....
