So i winterized two weeks ago, drained everything but didn't have any duck tape at the time. It rained again. I ouldn't find the hose to drain the wing holes again so i poured anti freeze into the holes because we were set for a quick freeze that night.

I guess i didn't use enough. Three of the holes are just slushy BUT one froze solid. I packed ice melting salt into the hole to melt it for removal but Tell me people have accidentally froze up before without damage to the hulls?

I bought a used Hobie 21 SC. it leaks in the 2 fore holes. So if there are any solutions to patching the holes/leaaks, I would love to know them
