    Unfreakin- believeable!

    I just can`t win, the noaa tide chart say low tide is at 10:30 am current time, so I head to the launch around noon, first stopped at a deli for lunch for me and the misses, we get to Crowley`s and it is the lowest tide I have seen there period! , I just can`t believe it. So we hang for about an hour eating our lunch, the tide was coming in, it was the average low tide i`m used to and not dif to launch the ski between the piling and bulkhead... I get ski launched, misses hangs out on ramp, ride ski back and forth warming up engine in channel. I have the rear portion of the seat off to keep an eye on things, coolant level looks good and on the next pass going to stop and check the oil. WELL, after I turned around, went to accel just a little and oil light comes on with beep, scares the beejesus out of me, I imediately shut off ski. wait a second, bc wind is pushing me down the river, fire up ski and no alarm, start to accel and suck up rocks! this is the first time this ever happened to me. Now current is taking me towards the trailer, as I get close I dive off and bring ski to trailer. On trailer and heading home, this is what I find!!! I just can`t win...PR...

    I wet sanded the stainless wear ring to try and get some of the gouges out, how does it look now?
    and I need to file down the stator veins...
    See that no-wake can in the first pic, that`s where I sucked up rocks, go figure!

    Wow , Sorry to see that andy. Looks like you can save the pump, and ring, but that prop should go to Skat for some fixing . Do you have another prop you can use, or borrow till u get that one fixed? Good luck with it.

    Say that sucks, I was looking forward to hearing how you made out with the repairs. It really sucks on how it affects Me

    Well at least it aint summer

    You should be able to get that impeller fixed up for around, I'm guessing less than $100

    I've heard good things about http://impros.com/ But I never used them.
    There must be someone closer, anyhow you can get an idea about pricing.
