me three, on having wrong trailer. I have a nice trailer but has only the 2 outer bunks, am waiting on an estimate to have a pair of center bunks added at a local marine dealer. hopefully not too outlandish expense, if so may try to do it myself (DC170)

One issue all Triumph boats has is the deck is screwed down to the (one piece) hull and a butyl-like material is used between the deck and hull. If the sealing material is compromised, water will simply find its way from the deck into the bilge. Even from the scuppers. Some water may (might) always find its way into the boat from the scuppers. Heavily loaded, imbalanced load, etc., might be a culprit. If the sealing material is compromised, it's a losing battle. One way to deal with this is to pull up the deck and reseal with new sealant. New butyl-like material would be my best advice. If elastomeric or other adhesive is used it may be bloody-hell to get the deck removed for maintenance.
