       I have a 1999 23' Cobia Walk Around. It's actually called a Cobia 220. I've noticed that my bilge pump goes on when I power up to a plane while the bow is fairly high in the air. The water has either come from rain water or from washing down the cockpit after a fishing trip. I wonder if any other owners of Cobia have experienced the same thing. I've looked for a leak but there is no obvious place and I am looking for anyone how has had a similar experience and where you've been able to find the source of water???

Thanks for your help!

 HOW DO. I HAVE A COBIA AS WELL..see the reply for cushions. my cooler in front of the center console drains thru to the bilge. i was baffled by the water issue as well until i did not put ice in for a short run and had no issues then went looking. mine has a drain in the center console itself and the cooler drained thru it then back to the bilge. you will also find if you have a forward anchor locker it drains all the way thru as well...hope that helps   Mark

Hi Mark:
Thanks for the reply to my strange leak. I have a walkaround and a fish box that drains overboard with a thru hull that I've checked = not the source. I think the anchor locker may be the best bet for my next check but that doesn't explain the water after washing down the cockpit or rain water.

Appreciate your thoughts,

Alan aka Pin Fish

  YESSIR,  your welcome. my forward fishboxes drain out the side thru hulls as well.
             no drains any where in the cabin or helm area that might go to bilge. not sure how your scuppers are but mine is in dry storage most of the time in Florida and the scuppers had some stuff in from the previous owner that allowed hose down water to run up into my center console  drain on the detail rack and show up later at the next launch..cleared the scuppers and that stopped..   cheers

Hi Again Mark:

Have you ever had your through hulls pressure tested. If so, how would you go about doing that without a yard charging you big bucks. A bit of reassurance is what I'm looking for that that is not the source of the water.

Thanks,
Alan - Pin Fish

Pin Fish,

I have a cobia as well and the anchor locker is definitely an issue. Another thing you might think about is do you have any access plates anywhere on the boat? I know it doesn't seam like they would let much water through but you would be suprised. If you have any access plates, deck hatches, ect. you might try checking the seals on them. If the seals are bad they will let rain and wash down water in. Also, if you have rod holders on the inside sides of your boat water can get down in them when you are hosing the boat down. These are just a few things that I can think of but when it comes to boats there are so many possibilities. Hope this helps.

Hay Hogfish Hunter!

Thanks for the ideas. I thought of the anchor locker but haven't tackled it yet. Also I'm thinking of the pad eye on the bow that the trailer chain attaches to. Lost caulking there could allow salt water in. You're right about access plates and I have a call in to replace those gaskets. Good thoughts and much appreciated!!

What kind and year is your Cobia and how long have you had it?

My cobia is actually 2001 196cc so it is a little smaller than yours and its a center consol but my achor locker is the same way as yours. I have had that boat for three and a half years. We also have a 2004 27cc Hydra Sport and we actually had the access plate problem on that boat. It was so bad that it ruined our batteries. We replaced the gaskets and its been good ever sense.

Thanks again Hogfish Hunter.

How are your boats powered. I'm thinking of repowering with a Suzuki. Any experience with those engines?

We have never used Suzukis but I have heard a lot of good about them. We have Yamahas and we love them. We have used the Honda 4-strokes also and they were great engines. If I were you and I was going to stend the money to repower I would look into the the E-techs. You will spend a little more but the reviews are awesome on the E-tech. Horse power for horse power the E-tech is lighter, faster, and most importantly better on fuel than any other engine out right now even the 4-strokes. Either way you go I think you will be happy. From what I have heard the Suzukis are great engines.
