View Full Version : "Water in hull" thread.

07-08-2013, 06:26 PM
Anyone know what happened to it? It really feels like my bow sits lower and lower every year. Feels like the bow is always sacked out.
I moored up next to and 06 LSV a week ago and noticed mine sits about 2" lower. Granted I have a bit more equipment batteries etc, and there were some minor changes between these models, but I'm worried I may be ignoring the inevitable. The boat runs fine but just feels heavy up front. Lots of other indicators too.

Anybody have build pics with the top cap off the boat? I'm thinking about cutting the whole floor out and doing one sac in that area like the xlv. I'm well aware of what removing the foam does, but I'd like some options.
Thx Newty.

Does that mean I get to drink beer and watch you drill holes in your boat this time?

Beer yes, but no holes till winter!

Easy fix to get water out of the hull, not so much to keep it out.

Deck plate , hole saw , dry wall saw, shop vac

I did the mod this last winter and I'm glad I did. After a day of wakesurfing or taking a big roller over the bow at lake powell I just move the bow ballast bag and remove the covers and suck up the water. It doesn't take long to install or get the water out.
