Mysterious hole in the hull
My new (used) Zodiac Hurricane 440 has a strange hole in the hull and I would like to know if it is normal. As I am a total newbie to power boats and ribs this might be self evident to you but here goes anyway (sorry about the non-nautical terms):
Just below the outboard there is a cavity in the deck and here the bilge pump is located. Apparently the hull is hollow between the keel and the deck, because when I run the pump until the cavity is dry it fills up again with water from the hole.
You can see the hole encircled at the enclosed photograph. The outboard is located to the left and the red thing is the pump. It is hard to see on the pic but water is running through it at the time of the shot.
Well, should I be worried? And if so what should I do?
By the way I just got the boat this Monday and have not had it in the water yet.
All advice is welcome. Thanks in advance.
