    04 FXHO cruiser, Found a screw in the hull

    Hi Guys,

    I was cleaning the hull today. First of all found these red rag like or insulation around some of the hoses scattered and shredded, not sure what to make of them, I took them out! Were these suppose to serve a purpose?

    Also found a screw in the bottom of the hull not sure where it came off or where it needs to go

    Any help is appreciated!

    Please see pics attached. I could not show where the red stuff came out from because they were in the bottom but the picture of the hull, there are two hoses that are zipties, these came from the hoses way underneath them at the bottom!

    it looks to be a shop towel and a screw from the handlebar pad. Very common to drop one and just replace it when building the ski from the crate. Nothing to worry about.

    You are so awesome! I talked to the original owner, he said when he took it for service, the guy told him someone left a rag/towel and it was sucked in. They replaced the bilge pump! This thing was shreded and was around most of the lines/cables, how does a bilge pump have this much power?!

    How do you think this has happened, this towel was twisted in the aft of engine compartment in the hull, forward of bilge pump!
