My I12 is taking on lots of water (a quart or more) in the bilge area on a half hour paddle. After much searching, (no pressurizing bilge area) it looks to be coming in around the bottom of the scupper plug. At least that is where the water is seeping out. Can I just seal around the scupper plug on the bottom with some aquaseal or other sealer or is this something more serious? The boat is less than a year old.

Hello,

I have the same problem with my 2009 i12S. After being some hours on the water I can find about 4 liters in the bilge. I cannot find where it comes in. I floated the bilge but I couldn't find a leak. I think the water comes somewhere in when I am sailing in a little rough water with waves (tension of the hull). Now I am putting my stuff in plastic bags in the "dry" bow storage.

There have been issues with some vintages of connector tubes (Scuppers).

Contact your dealer to have them file a warranty claim. This can easily be fixed.
