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.

    • I know I didn't pay $28 each for the trolley. Maybe half that. On the lake so I can't look up where I got them right this second.    Menards has the strut channel and a bunch of accessories. 
    • Strut is $15 per 10' at Menards. I've bought the trolleys from Mcmaster Carr before. Looks like they are $25 each on there for the doubles.
    • Dave -   I will go back to your original question and skip over everything after that.    You provided an explanation yourself.  In this case was the cross a representation of Jesus dying?  Or was it simply a representation of a soldier dying in battle.  I would say that a cross in a veteran's memorial traditionally represents the second scenario.     I would agree, to me this display is not religious.  Of course, as a Christian, I may be biased in my view.     I can't answer that for you.  However, we seem to live in a country where being offended can be considered a lifestyle.     We do have a separation of church and state.  The writers of the Federalist Papers wanted to make sure that our government did not have a government sponsored church like the Church of England.  I would not be happy with my government telling me how to worship.  So, I am happy that there is a separation of church and state. 
    • How many sleds can "we" get in that new trailer?
    • It's the interwebs. There is someone somewhere telling you what you want to hear no matter what that is.
    • Well how was the ride? I got my enclosed trailer ordered up today and will be here when I get back.
    • And who will decide what is good and what is not good for America? It seems there are opposing views for each perspective.
    • I have never heard this before and It is interesting.
    • There is also a separation of church and state. Put whatever you want on private property but keep religion out of the public arena.   Or are you also against the Texans who passed regulations making Sharia law illegal. Is it OK to have the Koran posted in a public area and to have rag heads praying to Allah in the government buildings?
