impeller duct problem
The fins on my impeller duct look like they are deteriorating. Each fin has a spot about the size of a dime that looks like it's slowly being "eaten" away. If you were to look through the nozzle from the back of the ski, the area of each spot is on the front side of each fin facing the nose of the craft. Can cavitation cause this to happen? The ski is a 2007 FXHO.

Yep. Cavitation. Take a good look at your impeller for any nicks and scratches. Give Impros a call if you need more help with this. email - email@example.com Dave can help you with all pump and impeller issues.

The SeaDoos have similar problem with cavitation burns especially with the SS liners. Try to reduce cavitation by properly pitched prop or maybe the anticavitation cones. These skis produce so much power when modded it is tough to get rid of all cavitation.
