THANK YOU so much for the info. I will take out the rear seat tomorrow as it sits on top of the main floor.

I pulled the 4 access covers that were visible in the main cockpit, and all they provided was an access area for the seat bolts. I hope there is an access area UNDER the back seat area when I pull it. I would love to fix this in the A.M. and be on the water as it is going to be 75 degrees tomorrow here.

As it stands, I will post more findings tommorrow. If there are no postings, refer to my previous post.

did you walk away from the hose when filing it up? sounds like it didnt shut off and overfilled in the boat.
