Quintrex 570 OS Leaky Cab


Recommended Posts

Looking for Quinny 570 Ocean Spirit owners who have had issues with leaking cabins. Mine is a 2015 with full clears (yes they have minor leaks) but I am having major issues with water draining to the lower end of the walk through aluminium hatch surround (Imagine where your legs would rest when accessing the anchor) the water seems to be accumulating on the forward side of this and the dripping over the cushions. I originally thought it was the hatch seal but it doesn’t seem to be the case. There also seems to be water dripping from the intersection of the windscreen and the dash. It seems to be soaking through the seal beneath the screen? Whether it is rain or just spray, the cabin is frustratingly “not dry”. While I’m at the point of stripping the roof liner out and hosing it down to find the leaks, I just wanted to check the forums to see if anyone had similar probs and solutions?

Cant beat a fully sealed hard top eh?

and the larger plate ones (*similar to Zorans)

Hmmm. I think you have my boat confused with another. My barrycuda is a Fibreglass hull.  I do have a custom ally/stainless/plate glass hardtop bolted on.
