So you're saying it leaks out of the livewell, right? The livewell won't hold water? Or, the water leaks from the livewell into the boat?

If it's leaking out of the livewell you probably need to adjust and or replace the valve.

Either right behind the step up to the bow deck or right infront of the rear storage compartments. Remove the 4 screws in the coreners of that panel and take a look to see how the valves are working and if they need to be adjusted.

marine_man, I guess I should have been more specific but to answer your question, both. The livewell won't hold water very long and it seems to be leaking into the boat(bilge).

Ok...

I'm guessing since that's the case that the hose that runs from the bottom of your livewell back to the valve has a cut / tear in it. What I'd do to find out where the leak is is to pull the boat out of the water and run water in the livewell with a hose. If it leaks out of the livewell & you end up with water in the boat it almost has to be the hose from the drain to the valve. Try and get access to those locations as best as you can (it's a bear sometimes... you'll probably end up standing on your head) but you'll need to either figure out where the cut is or replace the hose between the livewell and the valve that controls that livewell.

It might be as easy as a loose hose clamp too, or a broken livewell valve (which could happen if there was water left in the valve & it froze, and it cracked in the right spot... so before you tear into replacing the hose check all the easy stuff first.

I'm guessing if you pull the panel you'll need to get into to access the valves you'll find the problem pretty quick.

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
    • Wonder if it is on Netflix?   Looks like there is actually a good reason to build the wall.....it could help keep the Mexicans out of harms way from drunken South Texas hunters. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/19/hunters-charged-in-texas-shooting-had-blamed-immigrants.html
