unknown leak
water in port side compartments, after removing 2 filled buckets, more seeping in. Is there any way to find entry into a bilge area? Friends put the boat on trailer last fall and reported hearing water sloshing, but we could not find any. Spring clean up is when I discovered the water inside the boat. Are there any better diagrams of the hull design? please help, single older female w/o any real help but myself.

Re: unknown leak
Judy is the port side compartment the one in the cockpit seat or in the cabin?

Re: unknown leak
Had the same problem during restoration of R.L.24,2 leaks,first was through the rearbulk head at outboard well area and showing up under rear bunk/galley and in area under the cockpit area, replaced the rear bulk heads, second was discovered after seeing a drip of water some 4 days after sitting on the trailer from relaunching, coming from area of keel housing,drilled a hole though the cabin floor next to keel box and yes water,then cut 200mm wide strip all around keel box and removed the flooring, keel box had cracked from hull,There is a void of about25mm from hull to inner cabin flooring. Had a fibreglass tradesman do the repair, never had a problem since.
