I’ve let it be for now as it’s never been enough water that it’s been an issue. Of course I say that and this summer it’ll start listing or riding lower.
Hey Davey. So you're saying that whatever water that are in your toons usually works it's way out by the end of summer?!? Curious to see how it's getting in. When we suspected water in our starboard toon we put it back on the trailer and it didn't sound like much water sloshing around. But when the welder drilled a hole in the bottom to drain it out it gushed out for several minutes! There may be more water in there than you think!

My guess is that, because we usually wait the very end of boating season to pull the boat from the lake, the water drains out or evaporates. Most years the boat sits up on Sea Legs for a good month with no use and then gets driven straight to the landing to get pulled. I really need to do a detailed inspection of the toons before she goes back in the water.
