Tightened up/sealed all your screws? One technique is to fill the boat with water and look for water coming out. Otherwise it might just be coming in through your skirt.

I always found that if your pyranha has the thigh brace screws in the skirt lip, water leaks around them.

Yeah, that snapdragon liplock skirt takes care of that thighbrace screw problem. When I had a 420 I took an old mountain bike tube, cut it a little shorter, glued it back together, then put it around the rim of my cockpit and put the skirt on like usual. That worked pretty well too. I don't get why they still put those screws there though...

Tighten up the screws and make sure your skirt is tight. I didn't tighten up the screws in my Rev and then did 4 days on the New from Sandstone down and had to empty about every 2 rapids. Once I tightened them down it was all good.

thanks guys, i have the i 3 which does have the screws around the lip of the skirt as well as other screws. I went around and tightened them up, we'll see if that is where it is coming from. My skirt is tight, so i know it isnt that, hopefully the screws fixes the leak.
