Water in starboard rear engine bilge

Postby RickieT » February 2nd, 2018, 5:29 pm

Hadn't been to the boat in a week was working on another project with my port engine overheating. Did notice a lot of water in the starboard bilge closer to the bow if that makes sense. I have a 350 Mariner and there are 2 separate bilges on either side and 2 in the middle. This weekend I'm going to use a pump to get all the water out and see if there is a leak. It wasn't there a week ago and we have had a ton of rain...wondering if that might be it? All the other bilge areas are fine except for the bilge on starboard side closer to the bow right below the cockpit. Could rain accumulate in that one area if it rained heavy for a few days??? What should I check for after I get all the water removed?

Thanks!!!

Rick
