    Flipping ski for painting ok??

    Hey all, since its winter time here and almost too cold to go riding, have decided to give my ski a birthday and fix all the scratches and give it a new colour.

    Question is, am I able to flip the ski upside down to work on the hull, and just remove all fluids from it? ie: oil, fuel and water? Will I be putting any unnecessary strain on the engine mounts and/or thru-hull?

    Thanks

    havent done it myself but i have hear you DO want to support the engine if you plan on leaving it upside down for a while. the motor mounts are strong and will hold up on a roll over in the water but i dont think they are designed to support weight for an extended ammount of time

    Anyone else?? Have pulled almost everything off the hull, and just need to drain the fuel now.
