View Full Version : fuel trapped
03-25-2001, 06:49 PM
On the new nitro vees there is a plastic liner on the inside of the hull(I think they are only on the new ones). When I first run this boat, some fuel somehow got in between the hull and the liner. Does anyone know how to get it out before the hull cracks?

The same thing happened to me, the first time I ran my Vee some fuel & water got trapped between the hull and liner. I folded up a paper towel and pushed it down the opening just under the fuel tank with a flathead screwdriver. The liquids wicked up the paper towel and after doing this a couple of times I was able to eliminate all the fluids.

I took the liner out of mine. As often as i clean the boat, I really did not see a need in having it there.

With the cars we spray nitro solvent, like nitro wash or denatured alchohol on the car and then spray it off with compressed air, it works really well. On the boat you could try the same, possibly you could even make a bilge liner that wouldn't be corroded by nitro fuel and help stop some of the problem that you have.
