    Was it sinking too? They probably thought you were mean to take a picture.

    It happen to me on my old xp and I thought if I haul ass it would stay up. It fill the engine compartment so fasts like the jet was turn into the ski. It had riped the drive shaft boot off. So I had a 1 1/4 hole around the drive shaft. The jet presser was crazzy. Also when towing back it looked a submarine. Just put it on the trailer when I got back took out the spark plugs and shot all the water out. New spark plugs and ran like a champ. I wish I could of ran it longer but I got the water out. 4 years later ski still ran when I sold it.

    Recently I had a crack in my exhaust manifold on my GPR/SHO, ski was filling up with water with and without the engine running. Fortunately the bilge pump did the job without engine running. Now to go 15 miles back to the ramp, I pulled the plugs and prayed

    Got back to the ramp, beached the ski and jumped off and put the plugs back in and ran to get the trailer. In the end it was all good.

    Lol..I saw them at the ramp before they left, they flew by me in a no wake zone..didnt bother me sometimes do the same if it's clear, happened to be very busy and there is Just enough room for barely 2 boats to pass each other..
    Once I was out there they stayed with me till about 50mph or so for a couple of miles then I had to drop the hammer!! Lol.. Next time I saw them they were trying to flip it over to tow.. I was there for a bit to make sure they were ok..
