    Jetworks hose + duckbill question.

    Ok, first, with the duckbills, should I ziptie them to the metal screw in parts, so that they dont fall off. I am worried that they will fly off at high speed or jump landings.

    And second does this jetoworks hose look fine? -

    That hose should be ok, but take a look at he stock rubber hose and make sure its not kinked. Its kind of soft anyways. This is if you are using the siphon bilge hose from the pump.
    Mine some how became kinked and blew out. This caused my sound suppression box to melt and I almost lost my ski. It started sinking so fast, in less than 2 minutes water had filled all the way up to the heads before I made it to land

    Ronn25 is exactly right. I would replace the soft hose before trouble's happen. I found out about this a little late. The hose blew and melted the sound suppresion box on one of my boats. Water was coming in very fast.
