  • I am new to Sunfish and forums. I just bought a used one. When I turn it over I can see and hear water. It appears to be much heavier than it should. I have read about putting inspection hatches. Doesn't seem like there is much to it. I have found very little about water logged styrofoam. Also, I have no idea of it's age Can I locate where to put a port by going to a spot that sounds hollow?

    if you bought it used, odds are that the boat has had this leak a long time, and the styrofoam is water saturated. 1). Drain the boat. 2) cut inspection port holes. 3) let the boat completely dry out.

    4). Install inspection ports - I did two and very glad I did. 3). With the boat dry, use the process from the link above to find any leaks.

    I don’t check my personal messages often, so post any questions on the link above. The process of fixing your boat seems scary at first - but it’s not. It is easy and manageable overall. (At least it’s was for me - and I’m not mechanically inclined).
