Scott,

The 272 is probably the best all around model that Baja ever built. We really enjoyed the 2001 model that we owned a couple of seasons. The one major complaint I have had on all three Baja models I have owned is that there are too many areas that collect water in the bilge. I actually remember the 272 as being the wrost of them all. When I would wash it I always had to towel dry water in certain areas. This is pretty normal because they simply did not but enough holes through the stringers to allow the water to drain properly.

I would clean it up real good using simple green or something similiar and work hard to keep the water cleaned up and the bilge dry from now own and all should be good as long as there is not already water damage.

If you ever have to do any repairs on stringers you need to hook up with Kevin Brown at Lakeway Repair in Bucyrus, Ohio and he will make it better than new and get it draining for you.

Good luck with the boat and I hope you have a really good boating season.

Dock

Fairly common problem, find the drain holes and unclog them, it doesn't take much to clog them up. They're usually located near or at the transom. Hopefully they're epoxy coated, if not do it when it drys.

Did I miss a post?

Where is the 'balsa' wood chips coming from then?

Is the Baja 272 a wood floor boat?

First post - referenced in the 3rd paragraph. Pic 1, 5 and 6. I can't speak for balsa wood but pics look like medium density fiber wood particles.

Mine has drain holes a the rear of the stringer. They can get clogged.

I'd be more concerned about where that dead animal looking thing came from.



My 05 25 Outlaw had vents on teh side that always allowed any water (rain, wash, etc.) in the side and would get in that same place. To top it off, Sunbrella wasn't smart enough to make a cover wide enough to cover those up and the vents being at an angle always caught any water that was close to it.
