It sure is a Scorp.

Take a look at the gallery on my website: www.fjordrafting.no
You can also see it on www.scorpionribs.com
It is the black one which we took home to Norway by its own power 6 weeks ago.

It is very interesting to hear about what caused your problem. I would suggest to seal up all screw holes and all other wiring gates going trough the hull, but it seems like you already did that. Please keep us posted.

VERY impressive website - stunning photos - shame it is not in English as well - don't forget a lot of British people visit Norway on holiday and would love to try out a Rib ride.

How to drain?

I unfortunately never entertained the thought that there was a bung or a hole to allow water to escape from within the hull until having a chat with another RIB owner the other day. Sure enough there is one draining into the well at the transom. I'm pretty sure that there hasn't been a bung there since I've had the boat.

1. I assume I need to put a bung in??

2. How do I get the nose of the boat high enough to ensure that it's completely drained? I try to put it on the steepest part of the slip, but I'm not sure if I'm getting all of the water out.

Mr.Graham J. is a great man. He sends two of his staff to Norway next Monday in order to fix my waterproblem.

I have tried to fill the entire boat with water to see what happened. It did not come any water inside eigther console nor the jockeyseats. No airbubbles eigther. Can not find any cracks. And everything has been Sikafleksed very well.

There has been drilled a 15 cm. big hole under the very rear seat. The plate covering it fell off, and there I can see the water. It is 9 cm. under the deck, and 30 cm. deep. It tastes freshwater, the boat is kept im fresh running water though.
On Thursday, I will take the boat up on my trailer and let it stand there for two hours to see for waterleaks, then I will let the water out from the main hull, measuring the amount. You want to gess the amount of water?
