Re: Dufour 38 - Mystery Leak

Well i thin we found the problem, and the problem was out side shower handle it was broken, probably in winter the might be left some water and it cracked.
So the thing is that, when you turn water pump on it crates pressure and slowly leaks down there to inside, until it ends up in lowest part of a boat. So it explains why water didn't came in few hour trips because none used the tap and so on.
I hear about similar problem in Nauticat 39 it had plastic hose connectors witch was also were leaking.
