    Water in hull

    I seem to have a bit of water still in the back compartment of the hull that I can't get rid of is this normal?

    I use a wet/dry vacuum cleaner to get rid of it.

    it is kinda normal, i use an oil pump to get it out, they sell them in the online store if you want one.

    Same here.... Have noticed this too. Seems out of the reach of the bilge pump. I just use a big sponge and soak it all up. Its never that much... maybe about 2cm deep in small compartment areas. Doesn't seem too much trouble.

    Of what?

    Some is normal. The SHO has a bilge pump that will take most of it out. You can vac or sponge out the last little bit for long term storage.

    Where is it coming in at? I'm guessing seat/front compartment? (or drain plugs when you forget to put them in )

    This has been happening since the old Ho's. As stated above, a wet/dry shop vac is the most convenient way to get rid of the water there but a sponge or a rag would do just as well.

    It's also a good idea to prop up the front trailer wheel so more of the water rolls to the stern. I have found there is a low spot in the hull in front of the SC which goes up under the fuel tank. Even after lifting the front of the trailer, you will still have water in that void which I use the wet vac to remove.

    That's exactly right, I forgot about that when reading this. Prop it up ( I have my buddy bend my license plate back to get more angle ).
