    Aquacraft Rio EP Help

    Hey guys,
    Bought a Rio EP as my first electric boat and I love the thing minus one problem I'm having so far. She's taking on an awful lot of water through the cowling. I could tape the cowling and seal it every time I run it but it's a pain in the ass to have to tape it every time and remove it ten minutes later to take the battery out.

    Anyone else had this problem or have any solutions?

    Tape is the only real solution unless you rig up some sort of seal in the hull where the hatch and hull meet. On my old Rio I had the same problems. A little tape did the trick. It's really not that bad at all to tape it up each time.

    If you're going to get into fast electrics, you will get a boat wet all of the time. You also have to plan on flipping the boat at some point in time. It's gonna' happen!
    Use tape as suggested and you will stay dry and ready.
