    How do you get the water out of the hull bottom?

    How does everyone else get the excess water out of the bottom of the hull, inside the ski after washing out?

    Obviously, when you tip the ski up, most of it comes out the rear drain holes, but there's always quite a bit left in the bottom of the hull.

    How does everyone else get this out?

    Clean it out with beer and then get a long straw ?

    I just crack my seats and let the heat evaporate it. After my engine and stuff is dry I spray it with wd40.

    Yes, pop the seat and let it evaporate. Or use a shop vac if its that crucial.
    Or lay a rag/chamois/sponge in the hull overnight to soak up the remainder water.

    also,

    I would not use WD-40. It breaks down the elasticity of rubber and will however destroy plastic over time.

    Stick with a silicone based corrosion inhibitor.

    Bombardier lube!!! no WD-40


    lift the trailer tongue up and the water will pour out the rear drains.
    I also use an air gun to blow water away from the delicate stuff...PR...

    I use a shop vac with a piece of clear 1/4 tubing attached to a 3' length of aquarium type hard plastic tubing, then tilt the nose on the ski as far up as I can. The long thin tube allows you to get into all those hard to reach places that the water lies in.
