    How to drain water from front compartment...Genesis i

    This may be a dumb question but I was out riding in 6+ foot seas today and took in a lot of water over the bow and the front compartment is flooded with water. Other than siphoning it out with some fuel line or using a bucket is there an easier way? I checked the manual and that didn't help.

    Thanks in advance!

    no it doesn't...there's some sort of rubber plug in the bottom. I pulled it out but the water level isn't going down...

    wet dry vacuum

    And check your seals. You shouldn't be taking in that much water in the first place.

    Missed that

    Wet-Dry vacuum is the way to get the water out. Then check or re-do the rim seals so the hood doesn't leak.

    Put that rubber plug back in place.

    Make sure you don't have water behind the 'door' in the rear wall of the compartment.

    My Genesis doesn't have the plug in the floor of the front compartment. It drains in to the bilge.

    I am not sure if all years of Genesis hull are the same in this regard.

    I use a big sponge in the races, it fact I leave it in the bilge, and some of the other riders use a little manual type bilge pump, there is usually no electricity around anywhere.
