we had a exhaust leak at the 1000 island poker run . I tried to patch it a few times during the run but it just kept on leaking. so we ran the run with the hatch up slightly to vent out the bilge. need less to say this didn't slow down my driving and we hit a big wake and off went the hatch about 15 ft in the air and right in the river. thank god no one was hurt .... just my pride when I was tiring to drag a water soaked hatch back on to the boat. unfortunately this was not the only time this happened this season.
