Got a leak on the top of transom :(
Noticed the bilge going off more than usual, crept into the engine bay and had a look around. Looks like at the Top of the transom where the steering tiller goes in. Right at the top where the nut and shaft go down its leaking slowly. I just filled the boat up with a full fuel load, of 140 gallons.
Comments on fix, time and cost... you think the fuel load dropped the boat lower and caused the leak to show up? how much is fix? That engine has some play as well side to side. What else should I get fixed replaced while this leak is fixed? Its all original parts from 1993.
The leak does not look that serious... comments about leaving it until fall pull out.. bilge seems to go off once a day type of thing.
its a 1993 alpha 1 gen 2 , rinker 300vee
