Fin and Feather water intrusion

Hey guys, anyone have a 1997 Fin and Feather that was made in Bartow Florida that keeps getting water in the Bilge. I got the boat used and was installing a float switch and when I drilled a hole to mount the switch in the floor of the boat about 2 inch. forward of the transom, water came out. I ended up drilling a larger hole in the center of the boat at the same location and sucked all the water out. The first time I got about 2 1/2 gal of water. I installed PVC with a cap so I could access the bilge and drain the water. I keep the front of the boat jacked up high so it will drain to the rear. After a fishing trip I always wash the boat. When I check the hole I will have a little water. I check it for the next few days and I will have a little water in the bilge every time. I think it may be coming from the wash down but not sure. I have looked at the hull and it looks o.k. I have patched any opening from the inside that I think will leak. Can water stay in the flotation for a long time and keep seeping out. Thanks for any help.
