    pump off, ok to back in water?

    Somewhat weird question. I have two RXTs, albeit one has the engine and pump removed, and of course I still want to ride the other one, so is it ok to back them both down into the water so I can unload the working one? I guess it wont sink cause its on the trailer obviously, but will it fill up with water? I cant see how it would, but i figured I would ask just in case!

    If your driveshaft is still in, you will be fine.

    if the engine and pump are removed you will lose the the pressure on the carbon seal.. if im right.. it will fill op with water.. pretty quickly...

    Missed the part the motor was out. You will need to plug the through hull. You do not want the hull filling up if the electonics are still in
