  1. Ok thanks! I'll post an update when I get a chance to tackle it. I have a suspicion that it could possibly be my kicker engine combined with a slightly bent skeg causing the listing. Now that I have the lower unit checked over, and the thru hull fixed, I'm going to launch it on a calm day and give it a good work out.
  2. There's a bilge there already with a few sea cocks for the live well and raw water pump there's a glasses in piece that looks like it goes to the fuel tank. I think the water is ahead of that bilge. I will just have to go for it I guess. I emailed robalo and tried to look up us marine but couldn't find any contacts. So looks like I'll just have to cross my fingers and hope I don't hit any wires or fuel lines etc. I keep hearing about water also being able to be trapped forward if the coffin, but I'm not sure what that entails and I can't find any drawings or pictures for re assurance.
  3. Thanks so much for the info guys. Any ideas where I should install the inspection hatches? My boat has the rear fish box ahead of the transom.
  4. Well, I managed to dig out enough foam to get the thru hull out, there isn't much skin left on my hands and I went as deep as I could reach and couldn't find any wet foam. Still have to clean the old adhesive out of the hole There was a lot of blood sweat and beers involved. Now that I have the thru hull out, I can run down to the local marina tomorrow after work and grab the matching one. After I got that mission accomplished I tore the lower unit off to replace the impeller, let's just say I opened up a whole other can of worms, I'll save that for a separate post. I still think I'm going to have to drill an access hatch somewhere and core through the foam to check for water intrusion. Any help or ideas there would be appreciated.
  5. Does anyone have any photos of drilling an inspection plate just forward if the splash well? My boat is listing to the port side, so I believe the water is trapped behind the port stringer and not draining
  6. I'm not apposed to cutting out a section of the floor and installing a weather proof inspection hatch lfor easier foam removal. I would like to see how the string system is laid out before I start doing that though.
  7. Thanks. I will try that. That foam isn't the easiest to dig out.
  8. Found the culprit. The thru hull is loose and leaking. I pulled the boat out and need to pull the thru hull apart and re seal it with 4200. Any ideas on how to get the water out of there?
  9. Hi guys, does anyone have any pics of the 2120 with the hull split, showing the stringer system? I believe my hull is holding water. It's listing to the port side and when I removed the forward lower inspection hatch I noticed some "damp" foam near the hull and about 14" below the inspection hatch. I'm wondering what the best way to drain the water out of that section would be? I'm hoping to not have to cut holes in the hull ??
  10. Hi guys, I just bought a 1996 2120 and the sending unit doesn't seem to be working. Do you know where I can get a replacement ? Thanks in advance
  11. Anyway here she is. Does anyone else run a kicker motor? How does it affect how the boat sits in the water?
  12. Thanks! So far I can say that it seems the boat is completely foam filled, I haven't been able to check the whole thing obviously, also, the deadrise looks to be a lot more than 17 degrees (as stated elsewhere on this site). I would be guessing, but it looks more like 22-24 degrees. So far I'm extremely impressed with the build quality of the boat. It has the original 96' 225 3.0 merc engine, so I believe a re power and restoration will be in order shortly.
  13. Hi guys, I just thought I'd say hi. I picked up a '96 2120 today and once I launch her and start restoring, I'm sure I'll have a lot of questions.
