    flipping hull with motor?

    if i drain all fluids, from the tanks on my 00XP, could i flip the hull and leave it that way for say 48 hrs while i redo the gelcoat on it? or would it be better to just pull the motor for safety sake?

    thanks

    You should pull the motor in my opinion.

    I would drain the gas and oil from the tanks and make sure your motor mounts are good and flip it.. The 951 is not near as heavy as the 4 tecs and also you dont need to worry about hydrolocking the engine with oil as it is 2 stoke. I have done this many times while repairing hulls.

    right i didnt figure it would make squat being a 2stroke... i was just wondering if it was safe for it sitting for around upside down 2-3 days thanks!

    I have never had a problem. I have had them upside down for over a week without any issues.
