200ES float has water in it.

Where are the access plugs for this boat.  It's new to me and serves as a 3/4 ton pickup serving a remote island in Maine.  Right float 4" lower than right and boat is heavy.  Need to get water out to find out rate and trend of the problem.  Any help much appreciated!

    I think your problem is how did the water get in the pontoon. You need to find someone who does aluminum welding pull a leak test and weld the leak

    maybe he wants to drain it so he can get it up on a trailer properly ( to go get it tested & fixed)

    CRF-Thanks-that is exactly the need I have.  Does anyone know a good starting point for pontoon access plugs.

    Well not sure but there are caps on top of the pontoons you may be able to remove them and try some sort of pump. Or drill and tap a plug in the end of the toon.

    I have a sweetwater toon and this what I found. there are 2or3 separate sections-look for the welds-each section should have a plug .u can access from underneath the boat, top of the log. The plastic plug is 3/4 in pipe thread and can be unscrewed. u need to find the leaking section by droping a dry piece of string in each section. now comes the fun. If u have compressed air, a 3/4 plastic to 1/8 reducer for the schrator valve will screw into the the toon. u should be able to blow out the water and see the air bubbles .now u found the leak. go slow-Be carefull not to over pressureise the toon. good luck hopes this is of some help.
