True - I think I will do both - take a look at other boats and then also try a small pin hole to see. I figured worst case water comes out but since the hole I drilled is so tiny I can easily patch it up then haul the boat. Best case no water comes out and I am able to investigate further with a possible larger hole. If it is a leak in the shaft log I would hope that area under the platform is hollow and so long as there is no water in there I can cut out a section of that platform, locate the leak in the shaft log, and seal everything up. But first I am going to start with the tiny hole. Wish me luck
