    To clarify, I only used my boat 34 hours 1st year and I powerwashed the floor before storage, only time I pulled the plugs.

    After a day on the lake, bilge is dry, I guess swimmers tend to dry on the sun deck or towel off, water on floor dries in sun.

    Fair enough I can see that. Living down here on the Gulf Coast I guess I am just anal about making sure I don't get any mold or mildew in the bilge or compartments. I imagine it is not as bad in some of the drier climates. I always pull the T- Handle drain plug when I get out of the water and when I store it I always have the floor access panel cover off as well as I open the trash/battery compartment and pull the tray out and leave it open to let there be some air flow in the bilge.

    even in the humid weather of wisconsin my bilge was never wet. can't say i've ever had anyone spill water in the boat and most dry off on the back platform. we do get water in the carpet but I pull it out and dry at home. Iirc I went 3 years in wi and never removed the drain plug.

    The rear one will self drain if you get up to speed tho...

    We are among those who ALWAYS have water in the bilge. People getting in and our soaking wet, some water comes out of the bags when I unplug / plug in the tsunami, we have been caught in rain, hell, we dump water on the floor with a big ass cup sometimes just to cool it off. I pull the center plug while at the ramp every outing and I always seem to drain at least a gallon. The auto bilge has only run a few times when the boat has been in the water multiple days. We do so much swimming and people constantly getting in and out soaking wet that water gets down there. I do wish the Moombas would add a 2nd bilge pump next to that T handle.

    19 Max...only 10 hours, always a little water in the middle over the drain plug. Dealer said it was good for the boat, should have a little in there. And there always is. Pump turns on when it gets too high. We haven't even gotten out of the boat while on the water, just cruising. This sound correct?

    Although I wouldnít say itís bad for a boat, calling it good is unusual......

    I would expect a new wakeboat not being used for any tow sports to be dry as my las vegas dirt yard.

    I am absolutely perplexed at the people who say there boat is 100% dry at the center plug after a day at the lake. I hardly ever fail to pull center plug to drain water out. If your boat is 100% dry, then you aren't like me and have kids who jump out of boat and climb back in and jump again 700 times a day!! Even with my old stern drives, I never left the boat ramp without pulling plug. Bilge pump will pump most of it out, but most days my pump never comes on. I have to pull plug to drain it.

    We ALWAYS have water in the boat but I have NEVER gotten so much as a drop of water out of my rear drain plug, even when I pull it while on the ramp. I was told by my dealer that’s because of a design flaw where the drain plug is actually located above a “shelf” in the rear of the boat. I believe the dealer has to lift the nose of my boat during winterization to get all the water out. I wish my LSV had a center drain plug.

    My auto bilge goes off probably twice an hour if not more when out and about. Even with just two folks on board. Always thought it was from water leaking in slowly by design (drive shaft etc.) or cutting power abruptly after a surfer is down and the swell hitting the back.

    Iíll have to take a look just after putting around the marina before watersports or ballast is turned on and see if there is an unusual amount of water and trace the source if so.
