Water in the bilge



<font FACE="arial,helvetica"><font SIZE="2">Hello, I have a freshly restored Ampi. Went in and out of the water twice,
and a total of maybe 5 minutes swimming. Got home, and found @ 1/2 gallon in
the bilge at the rear. Water was below drain plug level, and below bilge pump
level (I used a wet vac to get out). A little dampness in the hood aea, but
not enough to have gone down drain tube. Could it have entered rear engine
cover vents-I went pretty slow going in- maybe 10mph. What is normal on a
fresh resto with new everything? Areas to check? Love our new car, but just
trying to learn as I can! Thanks! Brian in CA</font>
