    Water in hull

    Hi,

    im asking for a friend, when he rocks his fx 160 hull on the trailer it sounds like there is a lot of water in the hull, when you look inside the hull there isn't anything in there. It sounds like it's between the twin skins, question is why would this be? What can be done about it??

    Has he inspected the hull for any gouges or cracks that could be allowing the water to enter? Could be internal or external.

    He might can pull the grate and ride plate. Might be taking on water at one or more mounting holes.

    What Tony said.. The water box is full of water and thats the sloshing sound. Bet if he starts the engine and revs it up he will blow a ton of water out the exhaust
