    Genesis - capsized yesterday

    When having 3 adults on board ski flipped over. All is good with engine etc. however the foam in the seat is saturated. Can anyone shed some light on how to get it dry? Can I take it apart?

    Thanks, Laurie

    Stand the seat on end, let it drain out.

    One end up may drain better than the other, try both ways.

    Sunshine after it has mostly drained helps too, while it is still standing upright.

    Rolling a Genesis takes some doing

    I'm guessing the driver didn't apply throttle to stabilize the hull when it started to roll.

    dont put it in direct sun light to dry. If you can put it in shade and put a fan on it would me my recomandation. Happy the motor is good.

    WOW!!!!

    I'm 235 Lbs, and I can stand on one of the rear corners of my Genesis, and jump off, and it doesn't act like it's going to fall over.

    Anyway... yes, stand it on end, and it will drain.

    Even on such a huge craft, I dont see 3 people being all that stable.

    My SLT780 with 3 people is QUITE tipsy unless youre moving at a good 20+mph. All it takes is one person to be leaning the wrong way, and its rolling.
