Water Leak in 03 GTX SC.. could be ???
Only getting water in hull when seadoo is sitting still in water.
My electric bilge pump kicks on for a bit about every 15 min or so.
The usual culprit is Carbon Seal, but I was thinking that would leak
when engine running more so than engine off and just sitting still afloat.
Any hints or suggestions welcome. I might be thinking in reverse about
the leak so please help a wet guy out.

When your engine is running it will automaticly pump the water out of the ski, so you don't notice it that your carbon seal and plate is broken.
It uses the underpressure of your jet propulsion to pump the water out.

You may have found the problem by now but I had the same problem with my 2003 GTX SC Limited last summer. The water was coming from the drain plugs. The plugs themselves were not leaking, the water was coming in from around the drain plug assembly. I removed the whole assembly (pretty easy) cleaned the area with a razor blade, applied a marine silicon sealant around the assembly and plate and screws and re-installed everything. Be sure to do both assemblies. I have never had drain plug assembly leaks on any previous SeaDoos.
