    It will not sink. Now if you stop riding it will fill up with water but still not sink to the bottom.

    As long as the ski is moving forward the vacuum created by the open hole in the back of the hull and the water behind it will pull the water out of the hull. This is how versaplugs and duckbills work.

    So to answer your question no. Just don't stop otherwise the hull will fill up

    Not sure why you'd want to find out.

    Interesting "hypothetical"

    As said already, it won't sink as long as you're on plane. Come off plane, it'll start filling up. It won't sink because it has foam for flotation. It might capsize when filled with water, though, and it won't take much water to totally screw your motor.

    I just had to laugh at the thought of someone not only asking this question but also the inevitable "Damn they said this would happen"
