I just finished this job. I have extra windshield screw cover (about 20 feet) that I'll sell for half price. It's white however. Pompanette doesn't make black anymore. PM me if interested.

2002 Pursuit 3000 Express with water in the cabin

Postby holmzee » Mon May 29, 2023 10:10 pm

I ripped out the headliner a few months ago. The screw holes do not penetrate. The only penetrations are the hatches and two holes for the wiper wires. Sure enough, these holes were leaking. This is what ruined the headliner (sagging). There is also mold on the foam liner sides. Yesterday I removed the windshield and filled the holes with bondo glass. Going to rewire the wipers somehow. I am also buying new gaskets... found them here. I think there are correct and hopefully not discontinued. I will update if not right. Thinking about using Sintra PVC board for the headliner.

This is part of a larger project in which I removed the "boxes" on the hatch in order to replace the water heater and rebuilt the front of both engines due to the raw water pumps leaking and rusting everything up really bad. I was able to get the hatch vertical.

Would you guys know what size plug to use to close up the forward bilge area?
It's a 1" just went through the whole leak thing only mine is the fresh water system. I tried plugging the hole but the water dripped from the water tank along the bulkhead and into the forward cabin via the cut through for the hoses. So I actually trapped the water up front. I am going to foam and flex seal around the hose cut through before I put the forward plug back in.
