Although quick and easy repair for boat leaks can be accomplished under water, EMRGENSEAL will work on dry land within the interior of the boat. When considering quick and easy repair for boat leaks, do not trust products from big box stores that are not permanent solutions and one part products that will only result in temporary repairs. You need a strong, multi-component sealant that will permanently seal and protect the substrate.
The Hazards of Boat Leaks
Boat leaks are a serious maintenance hazard and not only could they result in dangerous predicaments, but they if not detected on time, they can break down surfaces and ruin the entire vessel. Older boat models are prone to leaking because of age, wear and tear and deterioration. Newer models can be subject to leak issues due to material cost savings, thinner laminates to decrease weight and increase speed and diminished workmanship.
It is interesting to realize that a ¼” hole can sink a 30-feet boat!
How to detect leaks on a boat
Although it can be difficult to detect leaking in boats, especially the original source of leaks. here are some clear indicators your boat has one major or several leaks, which are in need of repair:
- Rusty stains near aluminum cans
- Wet or damp mattresses
- Various mildew
- Puddles of water under berths
- Damaged wood paneling
- Excessive condensation or humidity in cabins
If you come across any of the above symptoms during the course of normal use of your boat, immediately look into those parts of the boat that indicate the source of a leak, and thoroughly observe these areas.
