    Default rogers sub floor ?

    I have my 76 rogers gutted,motor ,jet, seats, carpet all out. Wondering how I can tell if I have a big wet sponge under my floor other than just cutting it apart. I don't have the means to weigh the boat ?

    Is it a wood floor? If you can see it if it is wet is is usually black if it is wet. Also any delamination?

    tap around with a hammer or something hard. you can easily tell soft wood from hard wood by the thud... and if the hammer goes through...

    Drill a hole in the bulk head where it meets the bottom of the hull with a 3/8 or so bit. Raise the nose up and see if any water comes running out. Usually if there's water, there's a lot of water, so you'll know.

    its wood sealed with cloth & resin. I think its original. I tapped on it & it sounded ok .doesn't even seem soft. I'm more concerned about if theres foam under it & if the foams waterlogged. I read another thread bout a couple hundred pounds under there

    If you're talking about foam under the floor on the Rogers, i've removed 3 subfloors and none of them had foam under them.
    All foam was in the bow compartment


    Looks like we were typing at the same time

    Roger sealed these up pretty tight, but I did drill a hole from the engine compartment and put a brass sleeve and plug in.

    No problem. One was a 76 like yours.
    Cut a hole in the front bulkhead and pulled the foam out.

    No completely dry.
    Put a piece of carpet up there for a little extra storage.
    Also partially inflated a tube just in case
