One of the very few design problems with my Pursuit is the Transom Door. I drift 100% of the time when I bottom fish. When I have wind or current that moves the boat more than 1 knot during the drift, I back up into the wind /current to slow the drift. If we have any waves, water comes up and over the euro transom/engine well and in to the cockpit. This is with the door closed. I have a gap of 1/4 all around the door. I solved the water problem by using rubber gasket material around the door opening. This prevents the water from running into the cockpit, but it looks ugly. Any of you have a more elegant looking solution?

I'd be interested to hear some solutions, as well.  The few times I've had my boat out since purchasing it, I've noticed the same thing.  Then, sea water gets in the floor fish box and melts the ice.

Exactly, melted ice. The first trip was a problem because the ice melted.

 

I don't think there is a fix, unless you want to remove the door and glass in the opening. I went to home depot and looked for the appropriately sized gasket material. They have some that is UV stabilized.

I also picked up some white narrow gasket material and put it on the top of the ridge of the fish box drain. This is the ridge that makes contact with the lid's gasket. Them I adjusted the fish box latch to make sure it closes tight. I don't get any water (well at east not much) in the fish box any more.

Pursuit should consider omitting the transom door. f they insist on a door, build it like the one on my old Grady. That was a door.

Don't the scuppers drain the water from the deck ?

 I've never had water come over the stern, but anytime water was on the deck it was drained quickly by the scuppers

Also, don't you have 2 drains in the top of the fish box ?

Agree that the door and especially the fishbox should be gasketed (and insulated)

Also, don't you have 2 drains in the top of the fish box ? Yep, but the gutter that is supposed to catch the water will not work, unless the gasket on the lid forms a seal with the ridge of the gutter. Thats why I added a narow gasket (weather seal) to the ridge of th gutter. Now, not as much water can't spill over the gutter and into the box.

What kind of gasket are you guys using for the fishbox?  Mine did not have a gasket on it.

Here is a picture of the fish box hatch. The black line is the gasket that came on the boat. I added the thin white gasket on the fish box.

The next pic is of the transom door. I added the black gasket material. I also added the thin white gasket material to the bottom of the door. I had to go thinner because the gap was not even.

Pat, you have a different designed door than what is on the older 2870's. My door is a 2 piece hinged starboard door with a cheesey clasp for a latch. In looking at it this past weekend I am going to cut a piece of starboard to fit the whole passage way and then have to cut my cockpit bolster down about 4 inches to accomodate the new door. It will look similar to what you havve on your boat. If my memory is correct my boat has a bit of a step down into the motor well that helps prevent water from coming in. Is the gasket working to keep the water out?

Yes, the gasket makes the door fit tight. The door is now virtually water tight.

My cockpit deck is an inch or two lower than the euro transom platform. I would be taking on water when backing into waves with out the gasket material.
