We just discovered water in the midship passageway and in the midship cabin. Pulled up the carpet and pumped out gallons of water from the bilge. Do not know where the water orginated from. Any one with a clue??
Thanks.

Some things that might help us out include:

What model, size, and year is your Bayliner?

Where do you moor your boat?

Did you notice the water after a significant rainfall?

Have you recently been boating in rough seas?

Is the water salty or fresh?

Are your water tanks still full?

Yes, need more info..... but, on my first 381 we had water in the bilge and it was almost 100 gallons. IT came from a leak in the water lines between the tank and the galley. Very easy fix- just tightened the connector. Taste the water, is it fresh or salty?

Just a thought, but I would sure want to know the source of the "water" before I tasted to see if it was salty or fresh.

I have a 1994 4788. We have some sort of leak that gets the carpet at the bottom of the stair into the passage way wet when it rains. We can't seem to find it as nothing but the carpet is wet. Any ideas are welcome.

Just a thought ... I had a nasty rain leak that travelled through the fur and across on my ceiling due to a front window that was cracked open to allow a accress to a tiny antennae wire. On the bright side, it did force me to re-caulk the cracked rubber around the windows as well ... ; ]

I have a friend that had a very similar problem on his 4518. We discovered that one of the nuts that holds the pipe to the scupper in the pilot house wells had failed and the rain water went right to the bildge. His bildge pump failed to turn on and we ended up taking about 150 gallons of water out after a heavy rainfall. (Water was ankle deep in the hall at the bottom of the stairs)

Access to his drains were from the corner liquor cabinet on the starboard side and through a cabinet in the galley on the port side. The back of the cabinet has an access pannel.

The connection is similar to what you have on a sink drain.. never saw one of those nuts fail until that one.

Good luck,

Had the same problem and it turned out to be the shower/sink sump was overflowing as the float was stuck. It's inside the compartment to the starboard in the hallway, next to the central vac. Could be plugged or pump or float switch could be stuck. The water runs across the forward step and down the hall to the bilge pump under the aft stairs.
