Things to check: the gaskets on the three screw-in bungs on the transom for perishing or being over-tightened (or missing!); if you've got any deck hatches, the gaskets on these for crumbling or getting damaged. Any ducts (even the shrouded ones) will let some water in - but not much usually.

As for removing the water - bilge pump and extra hose, or wife and a bucket.

I hope you didn't mean the water was actually in the skin of the hull - if so you've got a real problem, for which the solution could be drastic
Sadly, I am referring to water getting in through the skin of the hull and stay within the hull. and I can't seem to find any information on what is the material of the "hull core", I just hope it is not something biodegradable. I can live with a heavier boat but not one that will crumble in time to come.

Ouch. I think you need to trace the point(s) of ingress, and also speak to Ribcraft - I understand that they are very helpful as long as "unreasonable expectations" are avoided...

Then you can let the RiBnet standing committee of hull repair experts loose.

How old is the boat?
Give Ribcraft a ring and let them have a look. They have been more than helpful with other customers on here.

Why? do you fear a crak in the hull?

Slep

you mention craning how does your boat lift. is it on an SPL, strops, cradle or on a fork lift. how much heavier (accounting for fuelload) is the boat after ingress Is it draining with the bungs or is it staying in and growing every time.

I don't think theres anything bio degradablein the core, but I think your boat may not have a core as such. (i.e A GRP sandwich construction with Blasa or foam as the sandwich ) Are you refering to the gap between the deck and the hull (Void)

I'm asking why is it drastic and a real problem. I'm sorry I stopped the post a little early as I'm doing something else.I've since edited it, presumably whilst you were postinhg

surely you only get an award if you don't own up to doing the edit
