If not, somethings wrong .
Have you taken the rope handles off, and checked the moulding underneath? (a problem I had with an OK Frenzy)
We need some kind of valve, that can be put in the drain hole and used to pressure up the yak: good old soapy water would do the rest. Ideas anyone?

Put the old girl on some stands and fill her up with some water, enough to cover the joints around the scuppers, check your scupper holes, I've just read about a similar incident in the states, his were leaking below the waterline, due to a bad joint.
Also like Simon says check all the external fittings, a lot of mine were loose on my Prowler 13.
When I fitted the hatch to the Caper I did cover the screws and holes with silicone.
Also check the straps on your hatch are they tight, or can the hatch lift slightly.
The side handles have 2, I don't like the way they twist.
Hope this all helps to fix your problem.

Simon only been on windermere, not on water all day but in and out, i remember reading somwhere that if you are on the large size it could distort centre hatch.(im not saying im a bloater though.Ok not far off)
Marvin ill get some stands an do what you suggest the handles the wifes has 4 per handle so it cant twist much better.

I have looked on my profile tab but can't find anything to do with avatars.

A user Kendo has been using that avatar for a good while now. May have even been loaded specifically for him at his request.
Problem is, the forum does not offer any way to know which of the available avatar pictures is in use. Wish it did but the software simply can't do it.
Might I offer to put any of these (or any other you fancy) into the avatar section for you. None of these is loaded right now.
