    I think your boat is made the same as a Starcraft, and the hull is 1 piece of aluminum, not 2.

    It isnt split at the keel, except at the bow rise to accomplish the rise.

      I know, but theres a metal piece running down the whole middle of the boat,where it joins to the second piece it may be leaking. I couldnt tell if it was leaking there or just had water there from the rivet leaking. Pretty sure theres another leak somewhere else though because on tonights trip i know the boat was dry when i put it in and i drained at least 3-4 gallons out when i got back to the launch. Plan to fill it up with the hose sooner than later i think and try to find it.

        Pix would help.

        This metal piece you mention is on the inside or the outside, running down the middle of the hull?

          Have you filled your bilge with water, in the driveway with a plug in place? Is any water coming up over the stern into the motorwell? I have to replace my motorwell boots because water goes through my existing boots and fills up my bilge when I am in trailing choppy conditions (with a tail wind and trolling, or getting hit from behind by a wave).

            Gonna bring this one up from the dead since it looks like the sea nymph forum isnt getting much attention. I wanna redo the flooring this spring pending funds. After using it for a full season I want to add two in-floor storage bins, places to keep downrigger balls and planar boards and a few plano boxes. Also i need to fix the leaks, its pretty bad. Ive been recommended to use gluv it. Also wanna do carpet for the flooring, only have done vinyl before so i need to look up some restos on here with similar hulls. Anybody have any good restorations on the forum to look at that have similar hulls as the GLS 195?

                Thanks! I read through the comments on my post again, ill get a picture for you of where I thought it was leaking. It was on the outside of the boat I was talking about. Ill be picking it up at my dad's house on April 12th so itll be after that.

                  Heres a few pictures from this past season.Put few fish in the boat along with some smiles. Longest trip was 60 miles (round trip), farthest out on the big lake (lake michigan) was 13 miles from the pier heads.







                  Got this one printed

                    Ive been digging through the forums, I stumbled upon this rebuild, very similar hull, if not identical. I sure hope I dont have transom issues, does not look like fun and I have no easy way of getting my motor off.
