Just brought my 1968 trintella 29 'Trianti' from New Ross in Wexford, (which is 20miles up river), to Castletownshend in West Cork.
Not too much drama- other than a fuel issue, which turned out to be a blocked strainer in the pick -up elbow.
We found that there is  a slight leak into the bilge, which has eluded me to date.
I am convinced that it is below the water line and not a surface leak- but I cannot find anything obvious.
The sea cocks are now closed and I am thinking that it may be some issue with the rudder tube, which rises through the aft locker.
Any idea on leaks on long kellers would be appreciated

Stuffing box? Another obvious one, so you probably already checked.

The stuffing box is greased from a pump in the cock pit, I have checked this a mnumber of times and can see no leak at all.
There is some water being ejected from a crack under the star board engine mounting when the engine runs, this is very slight and is probably trapped water from a long period of seepage.
There is also water present in the port accomodation section close to the engine room bulk head.
I can't see any leak which would be constant and below the water line.

IS ther eanyone out there with a similar boat- the Trintella 29 is a Van de stat design and is also known as a trintella 1
