Default ranger 1860 water in transom

I continue to get standing wayer in the left and right side of my transom underneath the two round access covers. It bothers me that there is standing water there.

I have used silicone in attempt to seal those covers but still get it. Maybe I need to be more liberal with the silicone? Or is it coming from somewhere else?

I do slow down before stopping to prevent water from going over the transom, but fishing the great lakes it's nearly impossible to keep all water out.

Do others have the same issue? What have you done to resolve?

Inside those covers can come from anywhere in the boat I believe. That's where you bilge is correct?

When my 1860 was new to me I noticed some water in my two rear storage compartments. What I found was that the two molded cup holders in the rear were draining into those storage areas when it rained. I put a little silicone over the cup holder drain and the problem was fixed. Not sure if this is your issue but something to checkout. Ranger probably should have attached a small tube that dumps into the bilge area.

My water is pooling directly under those access covers. This is well above the bilge area.

I can reach my hand behind the rear storage compartment or by removing the covers.

Here is where the water is collecting.

I don't think it's coming from the covers... They were sealed pretty tight.

I also should add it happens on both the port and starboard side.

Have you been using the livewell? Is it possible the silicone on the upper portion of the livewell is inadequate?

Agree, it's probably coming from the top/back of the livewell. It doesn't hurt a thing. I wouldn't worry about it unless I were getting excessive water in the bilge.

In worried about the standing water on the fiberglass. Should I not be... It seems to have some black sealer on it.
