We just started surfing with our new 2017 T23. After about 20mins into our surfing some of the times after we stop to pick up a downed surfer or switch riders when we start surfing again the auto bilge comes on. It turns on when the bow comes up and the water rushes to the back of the boat after were stopped. It will activate for up to 10 seconds, quite a bit of water (with the alarm blaring while its activating). It’s not every time we stop but it has happened every time we have went out surfing now and only when we have surfed.

Have other people experienced this as well? I don’t think my ballast is leaking so I am trying to find out where this water is coming from.

I had the issue as well. It turned out the my plug n play bow bag had a small hole where the drain port was. I tried turning the bilge pump, so that the flapper would raise side to side and not forwards and backwards, which helped. But finding where the water was getting into the boat was it.

Any chance you are slowing down pretty quickly or maybe the other driver is when you are surfing and the wake is washing up on the back of boat and sun pad. This can easily put a good amount a water in the bildge after multiple stops and starts. Maybe the other driver is dunking the bow in the surf rollers when turning around also.
Either that or you have a slow leak somewhere that is slowly filling bildge and when you stand it up to surf all the water rushes to the back. Dry out the bildge completely and fill all ballast full while checking for leaks.

This happens to us all day long. I have younger kids and swim breaks are part of our day. They repeatedly jump of the sun deck and climb back on board. When we start surfing, all that water triggers the bilge. Is there anyway to silence the alarm that goes with it?
