So I found out where the water was getting into the bilge from. That would be the quarter sized hole in the hull near the bilge discharge where the fish finder used to live. There was a plastic cover (with a smaller hole in it) covering the big hole, and I'm positive the water was getting in there. I dont know how I overlooked that. I guess the previous owner had a fish finder that he took with him. Why anyone would cut such a big hole for a cord to pass through, I dont know, but at least the fix is easy enough. Im going to fill the hole with marine tex and call it good. Unless you all think I should fill with epoxy and reinforce with cloth.
