Skat Seal does it work?
My ski sank twice, I guess because of the carbon seal. Does anyone know if ithe Skat Seal/Kit works & will it prevent my ski from sinking 3X. Thank you...

Stock is best IF it's maintained.

If you ride just for fun stick to the carbon seal setup.
Are you running a 3 blade by any chance???

I run a Rad For Racing seal, real good and easy to maintain,Normal grease as you use around the steering and reverse cables, nothing flash, 4 - 5 pumps of the grease gun after each ride and all swet
The Les Cooke seal is no where as good, and you have to take the driveshaft out and move the seal over to remove the S/c, bugger !!
Have used it for 2 years and raced with B kit 55 hrs approx and all sweet,

If any one wants to try their luck with a rad4 seal shoot me a PM. I have a brand new one FS cheap.

What I will say about the Les seal is that it has a much bigger bearing then any of the others, this results in less chance of bearing bind.
I have seen bearings fail that have been used in salt water with normal grease, I use waterproof chain greese for MX bikes that is lithium based and my bearing looks good as new everytime I check it. R88

I'm running a 4 blade...Seems to work well so far. I had to take the engine out and replace the motor mounts, do you think maybe it's not aligned straight?

Thanks for the reply...How fast is your ski? Looks like you did a lot of upgrades? Where did you find the light weight hood & seat?
