lund pro-v 1800 help?

6 posts in this topic

purchased a lund pro v 1800 last fall and had it out only 4 times in the fall but noticed water coming in from somewhere had to use bilge pump every couple of hours to get water out of back.. i know the prvious owner had just put in a new araeter pump for front livewell.. could he possibly not tighten the hose or is the seal on it not good .. i called him and asked if he had problems with water and he said no and i know he fished alot of tournements up in grand rapids area.. could that be the problem or could the front livewell have a leak.. any suggestion on what might be the problem would be helpful..things that i might be able to check this spring when i get boat back from storage..i did fill the boat with some water to check if it was leaking from hull but no leaks found.

any ideas would be appreciated...

I had a somewhat similar problem last summer on a 1775 Pro-V. At the same time my speedometer quit working. The water pickup line that connects to the back of the speedometer had come off and was pumping water onto the floor at the base of the console.

I have the same problem, and after a lot of trial and error I learned of a leak was from the livewell(s). When I fish the tourneys and both livewells are full they leak over the seals and the water drains into the bottom of the hull. No leaks when the livewells are empty.

I have also found leaky drain lines to/from livewells on another boat I once owned. Seals do dry up, crack, etc... Water lines can break if water is left in them over the winter.

On my dad's boat every hour or 2 the boat will really fill up, fast (89 Lund Predator). One day I looked under the boat and saw this object sticking out of the hull....looked like a bolt. Unscrewed the floor to find that the driver's air ride(tiller) pedestal seat blew out and a metal rod that was part shock wore through the hull. Weirdest thing I've ever seen. A simple round head bolt, plastic washer and silcone fixed the problem.

I had the exact same problem as wave runner with the speedometer but even though it's a fair amount of water it's not what you seem to be talking about, is there water coming over the transome and entering through the access panel, I've had that and it can fill up quickly.

I've got a Lund 1800 and when I first got it used I noticed that I'ld have to run the bilge frequently. What I found it to be is the water splashing between the wave wackers when I'm backtrolling and pooling up where the motor wires etc. go into the boat. This can actually add water rather quickly. It's something I just live with.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
