Mystery leak in forward compartment

2001 Waterman was restored two years ago by HB. Since then, water appears in forward after a rain. All drain inlets and pipes appear okay. I may have to take it back to HB in January at Guide's event, but would like any suggestions. Thanks.

There is no drain in the forward compartment. Mine does the same although it is never more than about a cup of water. Sponge it up.

HellsBay re: "no drain"

I have another HB skiff w/o this problem. So must ask, how is water by-passing or is it overflowing beneath the forward cover where the 4 inlets with pipes drain into the main deck?

I have a 2001 Whip and have the same problem. The 2 latches for the front hatch were letting water water drip into the forward compartment. I had to remove the latches and re-bed them with sealant.

Take a hose and slowly let water run over the hatch and see where it's coming from.

Planning on placing video cam. and light in compartment to capture the water entry. Will advise. Thanks.

Do you have a trolling motor up front? I had water leak in around the mounting holes. Had to drill a small hole up front inside the hatch to drain the water and dry it up.

I do not have a trolling motor or mount. There is a recessed female fitting on deck for the casting platform well forward of the front hatch. I was thinking about creating a drainage hole from the compartment that would allow water to pass into the open hull of the vessel.
