Water Collecting Behind Center Console 175 Baysport

PostTue Oct 28, 2014 9:26 am

Somehow there is water collecting someplace behind or in the center console of my 2007 175 Baysport. It has the factory T-Top.

Once I get the boat on plane, the water comes out the bottom left of the instrument panel and a steady stream of water constinues to flow out, collecting in the cup holders and dripping down the side of the outside of the console as well as inside the storage area, soaking all of the life jackets, etc. I cant seem to figure out where all of this coming from.

This unfortunately caused my stereo (speedometer dial type) to crap out on the last trip. Very frustrating.

Is this normal?

Sounds like to me that your speedometer tube has come off the nipple on the back of the speedometer.
Thanks for your support!

It is amazing how much water can come from a small tube feeding the speedometer when it comes loose!
Have a great day!
