    MSX 140 inner hull - sealed?

    I was thinking of putting a few gallons of water + cleaning solution inside my MSX 140 hull today, to clean up some gummy residue. I just realized that the MSX hull has an inner and outer hull, presumably with some foam between the two, that may be a concern.

    Is there any chance that water/cleaning solution poured inside the inner hull could work its way between the inner and outer hull layers?

    Any holes, openings or fittings in the inner hull that I should know about?

    I've never seen or heard of any water getting between the inner liner and hull.
    I wash my interior periodically and raise it at a steap angle when cleaning and waxing the underside of the hull, no water sounds.

    Well, I doubt you would hear anything, with the foam in there, and the thickness of the hull material.

    Only real effect would be on hull weight, and that would be a hassle to measure. And not much I could do about it if it was holding water between the layers...

    I was reading about some modern Sea-Doo hulls having small mounting holes in the inner liner, and water could get between the two hulls.

    I guess I will just wash the hull out, and not worry about the possibility.
