    I have a 2009 Navigator 4800 that has developed a water leak at the starboard windshield wiper assembly. The unit is not easy to get to in order to obtain manufacturer and model info. We have inserted a remote camera and looked for ID info with no luck. The leak is not where the exterior assembly is mounted to the deck as I applied a liberal amount of silicone sealant around that area as a temp fix with negative results.

    I am hopeful that someone on this forum might know at least the brand of wiper used on this boat. Navigator has long since closed so contacting the Mfg is not an option.

    Thanks in advance for any help or advice.

    Since H&S, who was the biggest Navigator dealer in CA doesn’t exist anymore, I would contact the service department at Sundance Yacht sales in Portland. They were the biggest dealer in the NW .

    My 2009 Californian Veneti has Exalto wipers and IMTRA still has the exact model.

    At the base of the windows on the inside is a wood trim that can come off. On my Californian (built by Navigator) this wooden trim is the same one with the window defrost vents in it. This is the was to the wiper motors.

    Capt. Greg,

    Thank you for the tip. I'm heading back to the boat in a couple of days to tackle the problem.
