    Default what I found in my 18" 76 rogers subfloor

    So I cut a 6" hole in my subfloor to see what was in there. After sitting in my heated shop since October I found 12 pounds of brown stinky water. Who knows how much was there at the end of the boating season. I opened up the bow last year and pulled out a bunch of water and foam pellets. Just sharin what I've learned with other rogers owners , kind of a boat diet ! bet I've lost 30lbs between the two compartments.

    That might be factory water. Maybe it can be sold to someone else.

    Mine had it as well. Floor was solid with no indication of water.

    I drilled a hole in the piece of plywood right in front of the engine then opened the hole up by hand so as not to damage the hull. Water started flowing. When I pulled the floor top was pretty solid and underneath was pretty bad.

    Always a good idea to know the condition of the basement on these boats with subfloors this was in out Daytona V bottom project, debris and saturated floor weighed a ton..

    Why dont we jetboaters put access holes in the sub floors to do a clean out n wipedown after use? Ive been thinking about doing 2 and putting in cup holders as the plug per se so after a day on the river unplug, wrap something (havent figured out what yet) and wipe down under the floor.

    good eye on the socks. why do they both have "L" on them ?
    I am not really thinking this is a "temp" fix . The wood seem ok, not soft at all. throw my carpet over the cover and call it done and go boating!
