    This is why you don't let friends ride your ski

    you guys think impros or someone can repair this prop? It looks worse in person than it does in the pictures. I guess I'm gonna try and tweak the stock impellor for now so I can ride next weekend.

    He offered to pay for everything. I already sucked up a small pebble last week which put a ding on the prop, so i was gonna have to send it out anyway, but now it maybe trashed. I took it out to tested it to see if the rock I sucked up last week hurt the prop. ski would only run about 65mph so I knew it was damaged. I was getting ready to put it on the trailer and he asked if he could try it. he's looking at rxps and rxpxs to buy but he wanted to try one first. I'm kinda worried because it stalled the motor. I got a wear ring coming and I'm gonna try and tweak the stock prop for now. you guys think that'll work with an X charger stock intercooler set up?

    If he broke out any of the sharks teeth in the pump shoe make sure you take the rest of them out..it will cause a cavitation if you leave them in there all broken up..You CAN remove them with NO issues at all..alot of members including myself have removed these...it beats putting a new pump shoe in..

    I let my buddy ride one of my old skis when I had two, two strokes. He went out in the middle of the lake trying it out for a few minutes then we hit the stream pretty fast he went into the first corner and let up and ended up driving it right up on some of that soft swamp grass. Luckily no damage, but it could have been bad LOL Sorry your stuff got trashed.
