Hey thanks for the add, I am new to the Hobie world. Picked up a couple of Revo 13's ( 2009 & 10 ) the 2010 model is taking on water from Somewhere!!! Problem is finding the leak, put water in hoping to see it with no luck. Just saw the idea for the "pressure test" using the exhaust from a vacuum. any other suggestions greatly appreciated

Welcome to the forum.

The next question is are the rudder lines or rear hatch submerged or partly so? I had an outfitter that leaked like a sieve through the rudder lines with two bigguns in the boat and a little chop.

Well the pressure test showed leaks in both scupper holes under the seat. Following the advice of the local Hobie Shop I put closed cell foam in the hole & yesterday we were out for over an hour with no issues !!
