I have a 17' V-hull boat and have noticed that it leaks (but don't know where). After a few hours on the water, the carpet on the floor (but near the side) is wet. The wet spot starts small, and originates near the side of the boat. As time goes on, the wet spot grows larger and larger. Once I trailer the boat, I always pull the plug to drain the water that has leaked inside the boat. I'm trying to find the leak so it can be repaired, but, because the leak is below the floor, I don't know how to find it. Because the floor is getting wet next to the side, I suspect the leak is through a few rivets where the floor meets the side of the boat. Also, when the plug is pulled, the amount of water which releases is not enough to "fill up" the entire bottom of the boat and then bleed upward through the floor. (thus, I tend to think the leak is from the side) The floor of the boat rests on a ledge/lip which goes all around the boat. That ledge/lip is where rivets are located. Does anyone have any ideas of how I can find the exact location of the leak? And, once found, what is the best way to fix the leak? Thanks!
