    Boats leaking

    noticed my 1989 tracker is taking more water than usual and I found the leak. Anybody know of an easy fix aside from getting the rivets redone?

    Friend of mine had an old riveted hull Tracker ... and we patched several leaky rivet holes with Selley's Knead-it and JB Weld. They worked fine for several years, until he had the holes welded.

    I have the same year tracker. I used a product called, gluvit. Sealed my rivets like steel. Can't recommend enough. My boat hasn't leaked a single drop since I applied it. Been over 5 years...

    I had the same problem no more leaks first fill boat with water take a marker and mark really bad rivets replace then I sanded bottom of boat and took my finger and smeared 5400 marine epoxy then painted bottom with a product called wetlander that stuff is slick better not unstrsp your boat untill you are ready to launch and dirt will not stick to it jb weld is not flexible and will not hold up did this in a garage in the dead of winter
