hi everyone.  this is a great idea and we hope it works.  anyone having water in the aft bildge on the 4050?  if so, where did it come from? just when we think it's fixed, it returns.  most often when we have been in 4-5ft waves.

We have a 2003 405 and we also get water in the aft bilge. I was told by my Cruisers mechanic that the water leaks in from the rudders. I don't get alot of water, so I take a shop vac and vacuum it out.  I also get water in the bow bilge nd that leaks in from the bow thruster. Hope that helps....

I have a 2006 Cruisers 415(same as 405). I too get water in the aft bilge. Mine is not coming from the rudder posts. We have not yet figured out where it is coming from, but we have eliminated rain water, heat pump drain water, master bathroom sink, toilet, etc.
It is coming down the starboard side in the aft corner. My boat is now laid up for the winter. If anyone figures it out let me know and I will do the same.

I'm not sure how similar our boats are, but I have a 2000 3750 aft cabin.  I too get water in my aft bilge - not much, but just enough to annoy the heck out of me.  I checked the rudder seals, shaft logs etc. etc.  Nothing.  Then I decided to check my hot water heater.  Found my cold water inlet fitting was loose and was dripping some.  Fixed that and still had the water.

I was winterizing my hot water heater two weeks ago and had the aft wall hatch open. It was pouring rain outside.  While I was in there, I kept getting dripped on.  It was coming from the joint between my swim platform and the transom wall.  Mine is a pretty wide gap filled with what looks like silicon caulking.  Well, there wasn't a good seal along the entire surface, there were some small "splits" in the caulk.  I filled them in with new caulk and haven't seen a drop since.

Hope that helps.

RFH,

Appreciate the ideas. My water heater is on the port side in the back, and that side is dry. After I vacuumed the water out th first time, we had heavy rains, and I didn't notice anything in the bilge. I did not get down there when it was raining, however, but will definitely do that next year to check.

Thanks,
Stephen B.
