Hello from Nanaimo BC

Hello everyone
I recently purchased a 2013 Zodiac Pro 420 and I would like to pick some brains here. It has recently developed a water leak out of the rigid hull port where the hydraulic tilt/trim hose comes out of the hull. The faster I go the faster the leak.
Any ideas how the water is getting in and ideas on a permanent or temporary fix? We finally have some good weather I'd rather not take it out of the water if I can help it. Thanks in advance.

Ah, the rigging tube.

It just stuffs in to that hole. It's not held in by anything.

There shouldn't be any water in there. Your garboard drain is probably leaking.

Haul the boat out of the water so you can take a closer look. There's a hull drain plug on the Zodiac Pros. Anything come out of there? The tubes also slide on, so you may wish to remove partially to investigate.

I'm going to haul it out within a day or two and see. It was pointed out that there is another drain plug on the outside right below the one you see inside so I'll check that out also when it's out of the water. And yes maybe the tubes if need be.
Thanks for your help

Previous owners pic of drain plug directly underneath main plug.
Does anyone have a schematic of a zodiac pro 420 I wonder?

The larger drain plug is to get rid of water in the drain well above deck. The one below is to drain any water under deck. Had my Pro for a few years and never had anything drain out under deck.
