Hi Willy!
I've flown the Beaver like a Maineiac (pun intended), since it came out, without any leaks.
It has not had an easy life
I would hold the float underwater, to see where the bubbles are coming from.
A little silicone smeared in, and over the hole, should fix it.

Thanks doug..leak is at the split where the float "steps". 3 psi showed the bubbles.
