Thread: Flotation foam
04-20-2007, 07:12 PM #1
I wanted to know if it will be O.K to shave down the floatation foam in front of the waterbox to be able to move it up. I doubt shaving the foam will change anything right?

Removing a little bit of the foam won't hurt anything. If your worried about it cut it out in chunks and glue some of it back in elsewhere.

The foam does not keep the boat floating.......unless the hull is full of water...cut out what you need to cut out.

my open twin piped boat is completley defoamed and not caused any problems

When I sunk my GTX when the exhaust hose came off the foam saved my ski from going to the bottom of the lake...I agree its okay to take a little out but I would not take it all out. It will keep the ski afloat even full of water.

It won't hurt anything to remove some. If you don't want a mess to clean up take a big knive and heat it up with your blow torch and it will cut the foam like butter and not make a mess.

if your gas tank is always almost empty you have nothing to worry about. I would like to add some to mine in the right spots...
