Can anyone inform me as to what could be considered a normal amount of water in the hulls after a 6 hour sail in choppy water and going through waves?My wave takes on about one full glass of water per hull after a 6 hour sail.Is this normal or should I look for damage to the hulls?

under the front seat pad there is a plate that is glued/screwed in, this is always a problem area with the wave. we reseal them and they are good to go, however it does not sound like you have more water than normal in your hulls, we always have a few that leave about that much, then again we have some that don't leak at all!

I have a three month old wave, on a windy day after pushing the boat hard, we may have a cup of water in each hull. This is normal.
