Followup on the 420 Pro leak

I was incorrect about water potentially entering the hull at the bolt rope slots. It seems that Zodiac (mine is a Hurricane from Canada) put a sleeve inside the bolt rope slots and formed the fiberglass around the sleeve (picture a 3/4 PVC tube with 1/4 of it cut out lengthwise and the fiberglass wrapped around it. It seems the joint between the sleeve and the actual fiberglass is separating in a couple places, but any water that might get behind the sleeve never actually gets into the hull. Water must be entering a the rear end of the slot where the bolt rope does not fill it in all the way. Here comes the silicon to fill it in. And a new drain plug.

Following up on Zodiac water leaks

Gents... am recent addition to Ribnet forums but couldnt help noticing this thread. Am owner opf Zodiac Pro12 RIb and there was a recall on water ingress from transom area where the through holes are machined to fit self balers. The holes were machined such that the wall thickness with double bottom was compromised. Repairs were completed FOC under warranty

I am attaching a documented procedure for rectifying the issue.

Good luck to all
