how am I to store my boat outside in ND if there is water trapped in the hull, I am pretty sure I can hear it under the ski locker. doenst really matter if I get all the water out of the engine if there is water in the hull right???? its in my garage this year (65degrees) but what if next year I dont want it in there?

thanks

This is a common known issue.... I found this in my 08 LSv as well... You can drill an access hole in the ski locker floor, dig out the foam and suck out the water... Get screw in deck plate that fits.... Check out this thread...

the water in the foam in the hull may not do any damage , water in the cooling system of your motor will definitely get you to spend $ for a new motor

is yours outside in the winter Doc? I'm only guessing that you have months with sub-zero as we do here? I also assume you have water under the locker? seems we all do.
