    2000 GP 1200 feels heavy ??? Hull Problem

    I have my conversion all apart minus motor no fuel and seat and battery and exhaust , it took 4 200 lb men to carry it and flip it over this doesn't sound right does it ? I had water seeping in sides of hull were the halves meet just a little when it was sitting in water , anyone think there is water in the Cells on the right and left inside of hull ? Is this area Sealed when the hull is split ? Or could they be full of water ?

    Pop some hole in the inner liner near the back after the midwall.

    +1 ^ poke a hole on the inner layer and see if there is water in there. Sounds like is way to heavy i can pull the hull from trailer to dolly by myself so i doubt it takes 4 to lift it.

    Sure sounds like water in the inner liner. I had the same thing on my first conversion.

    Just drill some holes in the liner. Best spot is the base of the tower that supports the waterbox and similar on the opposite side. Don't try to separate the hulls.

    Another post had listed dry bare hull weight at 250 lbs. Figure it weighs 600 lbs range fully assembled.. sounds correct to me..

    some good info here. Yes, the foam between the hull and liner absorbs moisture over time. Not sure if it will leak out while its upside down. I would drill holes once you flip it back and leave them there so that anything that can get in can also get out in the future.
