Duckworth Offshore

Post by sitkaspruce » Mon Jan 23, 2012 7:39 pm

Anybody having a problem with the Duckworth Offshore or Weldcraft Cuddy King not really having a self-bailing rear deck??!! My boat sits a little bow down in the water, (even w/fulll fuel) and when if rained a bunch, the water did not drain to the rear, it ended up in the Hull, forward of the factory installed bilge pump!

I have a Duckworth 26 OS and have not had any problems and I had my boat in the marina for 4 months and would rinse out the back deck after each use. Sounds like you rear deck is not sealed had a little water in the hold but not enough to run the bildge.

I have an '11 Weldcraft 260 Cuddy King and with a 175 gal full tank or with only 40 gal in it, zero issues.

Sitkaspruce -

What size of boat do you have? I have heard of some others having the same issue.

My understanding is the issue primarily lies with single OB models. People that have twins have the appropriate weight ratio...as it was originally designed.

I have twins and no bilge in the bow, and do not I have any water problems.
