Hey everyone,
I am replacing my Wave seat covers, and was wondering if I should reseal the ports while I’m at it. My Wave is a 2004, and I’m not sure if the ports have ever been maintained or “tampered” with over it’s life. On the other hand, I don’t want to mess them up if they already have a good seal. Are there any visible signs of wear that i could look for? Or should i just go ahead and reseal while they are exposed?
Thanks
Puff

Spray some soapy water all around the access port. Jam a flexible hose in the drain plug hole, and blow a few puffs of air into the hull. If you see bubbles everywhere, probably a good idea to remove the port flange and re-caulk it.
