    2003 GP1300R water trapped in hull dilemma Advice Needed

    I noticed when tearing apart my hull that it has water inside the hull coming out from where the motor mount bolts are when I flip it over on its back hull facing upward.... how to I remove this water and how can this water be inside the hull?

    How do I remove this water sandwiched in the hull?

    I was reading up that there is a recall in the 2003 models from the ride plate bolt brackets but I want to be sure and don't want to keep throwing parts at this thing for no reason.

    I also read that some people drill a hole on the bottom and then seal the hole up after it drains and continue that cycle.

    I can hear the slight wishy washy noises but I don't know from what part of the hull is leaking in or if it was from simply me washing it down with a hose earlier this week.

    At this point what are the steps of diagnosis removal and repair of this water in hull contamination on my 2003 GPR hull?

    I think I am going to let it sit upside down for a couple days and see if it evaporates but right now I think I am on information overload and can't tell if I am making things better or worse for myself or if I am being too OCD/hypochondriac about what seems like a little amount of trapped water.

    Thanks.

    There was also a post that someone said the bolts holding there tow hook let water in and it got sandwiched between hull also....

    I drilled a hole in mine and sealed it with marine epoxy after the water drained out. I used a 3/16 drill bit.

    you can drill a hole inside the hull at the ends of the stringers

    I do it to all the GPR conversions I take down to bare hull

    note the rear of the stringers on each side

    I looked at the page but couldn't find "stringers" anywhere..... the link sends me to page and to a post with lots of pictures..... I will keep scrolling to find stringers hopefully but most pictures don't have captions/wording.

    Are stringers the two columns that run along parallel to each other on inside of hull that support the motor mounts??

    the stringers are the raised pieces of hull that the motor mounts bolt to
