    Is the Yamaha cover supposed to be waterproof ?

    I got the yamaha cover with my new fxsho and it feels a little cheap . When the ski was covered during a recent rain storm the foot wells had water in them . I never had this problem before with my old kawasaki cover ,which felt a lot thicker than the yamaha cover. Is there something i can treat it with to make it more waterproof ?

    The oem cover does its job to a degree....I leave the seat raised 2-3 inches with a 2x4... then put the cover over for year around ventilation...during the heaviest of rainstorms water never got in to the engine compartment...but always put a strap around in case of heavy winds...

    For winter storage, I put a sheet of plastic over the ski before I add the cover. This is to keep the water from collecting in the footwells and freezing solid -- perhaps cracking the hull.
