I recently bought a decently maintained 2005 nitro 189 sport. Low hours on the 150 Mercury. The ski locker/ storage below lets in water, filling about half way up. The bilge will pump it out but takes 5 minutes. If I just take off this water floods through a vent in the floor, and scared the crap out of me. I was told I could plug this from the outside, there are 4 holes in the transom, including the main plug. If I sit still the locker fills halfway, when running on plane it empties. Should I be worried and should I plug it? Thankyou for the input
