It does work if you haven't done it for a while but if your doing it at the end of each session their probably won't be enough water to keep the pump primed. I actually had a little water left in the centre bag to start with and used that to prime the pump but then i stopped to do something else for a minute and when i came back the pump wouldn't prime, so i used the above method.

    hope this described things better.
    Now I got it, thanks. I've done this before also when I had a couple inches of water in the ski locker. I just disconnected the drain hose from the bag and held it down against the ski locker floor and flipped the switch and it would drain the locker as long as there was enough water to completely cover the hose.

    I put an inspection cover towards the rear of the ski locker area. The foam was a little wet but there was no standing water at the bottom. I still get quite a bit of "squish" sound at the front of the locker, but for some reason it's not translating to any water a couple of feet to the rear.

    For those that have installed a deck plate in the ski locker, are you guys planning on removing the foam each time you suck water out? or just leaving that little bit of foam out completely.

    I have drilled the hole and removed a circular piece of foam, and am in a multi-day process of removing water. I'm just wondering if I should leave the 4" circular piece of foam out for good so I have easy access down to the hull by just unscrewing the deck plate, or if I should put it back in and remove it each time. Just seems like it'll be tough to remove each time through the deck plate.

    csm,

    That little bit of foam provides a negligible amount of floatation so it's not worth the trouble of putting it back in. I would leave it out.

    You can add me to the list. 06' LSV. I actually noticed this a couple of years ago. Talked to my dealer about it and was assured nothing was wrong.

    I definitely have the issue as well, i was not even aware of it until i put the boat away for the winter.. like others the fiberglass is so thin in the locker I actually have a dime sized hole in the locker bottom i noticed when I pulled out the matt that sits under the ballast... the foam was full to the hole with water... i shopvac'd as much as i could but my boat is still soaked.. not sure what to do here.


    whats weird, is there are square patches in the floor that are dull and rough feeling, almost like they were fixed previously.. now I am the second owner so who knows..

    either way, very bad fibreglass work.

    I just checked mine also after reading this thread. My 07 Outback V is was pretty squishy.

    The water is probably at least three years old in there. I hope the cold weather didn't do any lasting damage. The outside of the hull looks find as does the ski locker. The boat is always properly winterized, but had I known this water was there, I, like everyone else here, would have already removed the water. I'll be sure to add this to my winterization checklist next year.
