SOURCE: Scanoe, Ram-X, Split in hull near gunwhales- Repair, How?

I found a Scanoe like this on craigslist that was being given away because of several splits ins the hull. I was ready to buy that patch kit on line when I stumbled on a solution that worked great! I was in Home Depot looking in their pond department and saw some self adhesive patches for poly ponds. I bought on for less than $7.00 and gave it a try. I sanded the inside of the hull around the split. cleaned it well and applied the patch. It worked like a charm!

SOURCE: Can hear water in the hull; is there a quick drain

in the nose of the boat right next to the handle theres a funny looking switch if you stand the boat on its nose and flip the switch it will let the water out.
But...in my personal opinion it keeps the hull a little lower to the water and the paddles deeper...

SOURCE: crack in clear blue hawaii molokini hull

Use a fiberglass repair kit, available at most hardware stores. Use an overlay prior to patching so you don't develop a soft spot in the hull.

Water in hull of bass tender pro


Find the leak and patch it. Use a good marine epoxy system with a sheet or two of fiberglass cloth laid-across the crack. Be sure to sandpaper the area thoroughly with rough paper. If you can't find a leak or crack, fill the hull with water and inspect for leak. Repair after.

Why does the hull fill with water on a 1989 waverunner 500?


more than likely the seal around the intake shoe and or ride plate has been damaged or is missing. the factory uses a neoprene type double sided tape in between those pieces and the hull, next would be to look around the rear of the exhaust system while running on the hose to look for water leaks. Also is there a flush kit installed and is the cap on it?

check hull type as a freshwater hull and a sea hull are different as sea water has a higher level of buoncy .Although i doubt if you will encounter a freshwater hull but it is a thing to think about and check.Main cause though could be lack of engine power for whater reason .

1995 kawasaki 750 jet ski overheats when going fast


Check your plug color. You may be having a high speed mixture problem. Is your ski spitting water out the tiny hole on the side? You should try flushing the engine, you could have a motor full of sand if you beach the craft but do not wash the sand out of the back before starting. Also inspect the engine water tubes for cracks. From the hull to the motor and from the hull to the jet pump.

I have a GE whdsr209 washer. Stuck on filling with water.


Ok, take a deep breath and blow....
No, really...
Ok, to understand how to fix the problem you have to understand a little bit about the control part of the machine.
Ok so here we go...
First thing is the first stage which is filling the machine with water.
So how does the machine know how much water to fill, well the answer is pressure.
If you remove the front panel of the machine and look on the side of the tub, you will see a tube attached to a plastic hull.
Air gets trapped inside the hull and as the water fills the tub the pressure inside the hull increases. The tube attached to the hull routes the pressure building inside the hull to the fill pressure switch. The more water filling the tub the more pressure generated and supplied to the switch.
If the line becomes clogged with buildup or developes a leak, the whole process will not work, thus the switch will not become engaged stopping the flow of water into the machine.
How do you check for opperation of the line and switch,
well remove hose from hull and as the tub is filling with water, blow into the tube creating pressure and thus activating the pressure switch..
You will hear the switch click and the machine should stop the fill process and start washing.
Rarely but possible, the pressure switch is faulty.
Mostly, it is a clogged line, disconnected line, or line that has been damanged by rodents or pets..
Hope this helps
Good luck...
