2008 - Nitro Z6 -taking on water
« on: June 29, 2017, 02:24:53 PM »

Hello.

I recently purchase a 2008 Z6, in perfect condition with only 50hrs.  Only problem that I have now encountered is that it is taking on water somehow.  I read on other forums that this is supposedly due to issues with the rub rail.  Has anyone else with this model boat encountered a similar problem?  I see no leaks in the boat. 

Any information would be appreciated..thanks!

Somethings to check: start with the easy- Check all livewell hoses and pumps. Next check to make sure your livewell is not filling up faster than the overflow can handle. If it is not a live well issue check your plug. The screw-in plastic plugs can strip and cause leaks.

I have seen on various models that water can get in the boat via a poor seal on a rub rail. However it's not that common and think about how often your rub rail is in the water. Usually only when cornering or when coming off pad the last half can get submerged.

Live well pump hoses coming loose, water pressure gauge lines or speedometer gauge lines are usually the culprit.
