    Any hole in the hull can leak... A new boat should not leak one drop.

    There is no way someone who can't touch your boat can give advice where the water is coming in from.
    Be good, be happy, for tomorrow is promised to no man !

      I agree completely, a new boat should not leak and its the dealers responsibility to sort it.

      All you can really do is get the bilge completely dry and then go out on the water, preferably on a calm day, and periodically shut of the engine and look carefully to see when and where the first water appears.

        I may have the answer for you. I have the same boat, a 2010, and had the same problem. It turned out that the drain hose for one of the fish boxes was never attached. Oops. Anytime wieght shifts to port, the drain hole goes below the water line; and if that hose is not attached, water flows directly into the engine compartment. Fortunately, the connector for this hose is attached to the rear, port side of the rear fish box, and can be reached easily by lifting the engine cover. You might want to check the fish box closer to the front too. If I remember right, you can check the front hose via the treaded access cover under the passenger seat. Good luck. I hope this helps you out.

            tassjo, have you verified that all of the hoses between the cockpit and the thru-hull fittings are installed and the hoses themselves are leak free? Are both ends of those hoses attached and include a tightened screw clamp? Are all of the thru-hull fittings tight to the hull and caulked leak free? The bilge plug is tight? Some folks reported slight leaking thru the winch hook bolt.

            Saving the worst for last, the gasket which seals the transom around the drive could be leaking. The engine in my Donzi had to be pulled to replace my gasket.

            Good luck and be sure to post the final resolution.

              checked the 2 hoses on the port side(thats the 1 the dealer fixed,both have clamps on both sides)also checked hoses for the self drainning deck(all ok)will probley block them of, just with a tapperderd rubber bung as i go offshore a lot.i think it could be the seal for the leg(out drive)as u mentioned.i am not very impressed, that was the reason why i wanted a new boat so i dont have probs like this

                  You would think with the obama economy killing boat sales (and just about everything else) that Bayliner would at least attempt to sell quality products.. The problems I encountered with my '08 were easily recified by me. Good luck.
