Re: water logged hull AKA premature launch
- Suggest fan and dehumidifier in area where boat is, and maybe a source
of heat, at least for any time you will be there. Failing a
dehumidifier, maybe you can kind of tent in the boat and blow a dryer
source of air into the tent. The longer you wait, the dryer.
If you have a strong vacuum pump, you might be able to figure out how to
pull out lots of moisture with a vacuum bag in a very short time (matter
of hours, I bet), if you can set it up for a really low pressure, like
1/2" Hg. But don't crush any hollow spaces! Look up the vapor pressure
of water (about .37psi at 70F, I think) at your temp, and try to get
below that. But if you don't have the pump it's probably not worth the
trouble. I used to put little cups of water in a bell jar and watch them
boil until they cooled off.
