    I've been told that they're stainless. They do have a seam, though, and I think that may be the issue.

    Used the same holes, caulked them good.

    The floor does go all the way back. I was...

    Yes, I should have taken more pics. I pulled all the old caulk. Those gaps around the pipe have to be where the water was getting in. Can’t imagine where else?

    Pics

    Pulled the baffles, here's what I found. Big gaps in the caulk. Figure if I clean and seal and put back I ought to be good.

    I concur.

    The design does suck, directed the concussive force of the exhaust back at the hull and the thin seal with hot water.

    So, what'd you replace them with and how?

    Thanks,

    Jack

    That sounds like a good idea. I've got a larger (8") screw cap access. The stock cap has always been a pain.

    Thanks.

    Don’t need to stand up under it, but it would be nice to have a bit of space above the windscreen.

    If I still had my 16 year old arms the bilge access wouldn’t be as much of an issue....

    Thanks. Also, staring at the block I see that the firing order is in the casting on top of the motor. Almost 20 years I've been fooling with this thing and never noticed that.
