    ProBoat PT 109 Leaks

    Hello,

    I've had this boat for over a year now and recently got it on the water only to find that it leaks badly from the rear. I can't see where the leak is coming from and am hoping someone with more experience would have some ideas.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Probably water coming up the shaft tubes when the boat is running.

    Pull the propeller shafts and put a little grease(white lithium grease) into the
    stuffing tubes, and the put the shafts back in(and out, to work the grease around) and
    see if that helps.

    Nyow!
