Matt, I read a few post on water in the bilge and nobody seems to have a fixable answer, my last trips out in Fort Myers Beach Florida I have a lot of water in bilge about a gallon or more, Matt how do we solve that problem, I have been using hand bilge pump to remove the water in the bilge before I can move the Hobie i12, very hard to pull up the ramp before removing the bilge water. Thanks for any help on this problem. Take care--------Frank

Not trying to cut Matt off ... but WHY do you have water in the hull? Fix the problem, not the result. Where's it coming from?

I am not matt, but most likely this is a warrenty issue.. Talk to your dealer about the problem and see what they can do for you. Hobie will stand behind their product, but you need to have a dealer contact the company. Good luck and post up the response you get from the dealer and hobie...

Water has to be entering somewhere. Possibly the drain scuppers or a hole. Drain scuppers have had issues. Contact your dealer. They can contact our warranty staff for technical support on that.
