    holes in bottom of 1995 2452 bayliner-gctid388805

    i just bought a 1995 2452 express cruiser. had it out twice and found it is taking on water in the cabin area. i looked under the boat and found there is a what looks to me like a bilge drain hole that conects to the toilet with a shutoff,the other is a bilge type hole with some kind of deflector on it that faces foreward so that when you are going foreward seawater is forced into the hole,the hole is just foreward of the engine. i bought boat from a dealer and they know nothing about it. i also put fresh water into the fresh water tank until it came out the spout,only to find out i flooded the cabin, whats up.

    That would be your raw water intake for the toilet[/COLOR]

    the other is a bilge type hole with some kind of deflector on it that faces forward so that when you are going forward seawater is forced into the hole, the hole is just forward of the engine. [COLOR]"#0000FF" wrote:

    Check your hose, fittings and clamps to and from your fresh water tank for leaks. You may have a hole in the tank, but check the lines and fittings first.[/COLOR]
    To check your through hulls for leaks get the water out of you bilge dry it out and place paper towels near where you think the leaks are and watch them and see if they get wet. You may need to re-bed your through hulls.

      The sea water inlet in the engine area sounds like it is in the area where Bayliner usually places the pick up for an air conditioner. ANY thru hull below the water line should have a valve on it.

        As for the fresh water leak from your water tank, you most likely have a bad filler hose connection, or a damaged tank. You'll just have to follow the hose to the tank while adding water to see where the problem is.
