    Water in Hull

    Have been getting a little water in hull the last four or five times out. Yesterday loaded on trailer an had about six inches of water in hull. Think it is coming in around the carbon ring but not sure. Is there an after market seal for drive shaft. Would like to replace that carbon ring if there is one.

    Al, Rotax Racing has a much better seal. It even has a bearing in it.

    I tried it today with the 15/20 prop. I still want to try it with my impeller and make sure I dont lose any RPM's/speed. I'll probably get that done on Tuesday.

    Jerry, on all other seadoos, the carbon seal almost always gave 50 more rpms than bearings but the bearings had less cavitation and less chance of water leak but needed greasing around every 4 trips.

    how did you seal the c clip groove when you used the bearing setup?

    fair warning on that new seal though --- as it became a massive headache for me this weekend -- your driveshaft needs milled to make it fit..... and yup needs greased often.. if you can get your driveshaft milled easily .. i'd say go that route.... considering my carbon ring is toast
