Common Culprits For Hidden Water Leaks On Boats
- Windows-As the boat ages with time, the windows become a common leaking spot. The worn-out and sometimes rusty frames acquire holes and cracks that let in water inside the deck.
- Deck glands- These vital fittings are used to keep out water where the wires pass through the deck. They are also a common leak spot. Common causes may be the rubber gaskets have worn out or the wires are too small for the gland.
- Engine hoses- Holes in an engine hose or a fractured spigot are a common source of leaks below the waterline. It may result from the powerful push from the engine pumps.
- Deck fittings- Some fittings such as stanchion bases can shift under intense pressure and crack. This results in water leaks through the deck. Jib tracks and winch bases are also prone to water leaks as a result of the numerous holes driven into the deck.
- Keel-stepped mast- If you have a keel-stepped mast, it is common to find water trickling down the mast and to the bilge. The mast track may be letting water through filling your boat with water.
- Engine water pump- As the engine water pump ages, the metal components get eaten away thus causing water leaks. The wearing off and rusting increases in Saline waters.
What We Do.

- Thermal imaging leak detection- we shall use our digital thermal cameras to check for leaks through variations of the heat patterns. The variations are indicative of the presence of leaks. The benefit of thermal imaging is that even the tiniest of leaks can be identified.
- Acoustic leak detection- Our acoustic leak detectors will use high and low frequencies to pinpoint the exact location of the cracks that may cause leakages in your hull and deck. Low-frequency signals will be able to reach out to further around the bilge.
