  • Scupper leaks

    I have a 2001 25 CC with the 315 Yanmar. I normally run the tanks 1/2 to 2/3s full. Drifting or slow trolling I have water washing onto the back deck through the scuppers. It doesn't happen at offshore trolling speed unless it's a very hard following sea. Any fix for this or am I just going to have to live with it?

    scupper leaks

    graceland, I have a 2000 25CC with a Volvo KMD 44 and even with full fuel I don't get any water in, are you sure the little doors are fitted correctly so they close properly?

      Well they close, and sometimes stick. I have cleaned the edges. The exhaust side is the worst as it seems the exhaust wants to hold the door open. Is there some trick to fitting them?

          I did and I guess the moderators decided to move it. I guess I will just give him a call.

            Had the same on the 28 sharking in seas

            I've had the same experience while sharking in seas I should not have been drifting in.

            That's when the fisherman's bedroom slippers/aka white boots earn their keep.

              These weren't heavy seas at all. I could understand it more if it had been. I'd like to mount a cooler on the swim platform but with the scuppers acting that way I don;t want anymore weight on the back than I can help.

                I had the same problem when I had my 25, with a full tank of fuel and 2-3 guys fishing , theres a lot of weight in the stern of that boat.

                  I talked to Mac this afternoon and he's sending me a new set of scuppers to try along with new gaskets for the deck hatches. You have to love service like that!!!

                    UPDATE: I received the new scuppers and insattled them, took about 15 minutes. The new ones have a spacer plate to help the door hang more vertically and also give them a lip to seal against. I finally got the boat in the water on Monday to test them out. The did very well. Little to know water in anything less than an extreme situation, like launching and loading the boat. Even loading and launching I had very little water come in. Looks like this is the fix I was hoping for. Thanks for the help and the parts Mac.

                      I have another solution for the "washback", especially on the port side of the CC25. Bill Dupree developed a plate that fits neatly under the scupper. This has totally prevented the "washback" problem. I've thought about stealing his idea and marketing it. Although I guess the market would be rather limited.
