RXP taking on water
I have a 2006 RXP and it appears to be taking on water but I can't figure out from where. When I am riding I have looked under the seat but don't see any water in the bottom of the hull, after I have been riding and go anchor it down for a while (usually sits for about 30 minutes or a bit longer) and just leave it sitting in the water I go back to the ski to get on it and I look under the seat and there is about 2 or 3 inches of water the bottom of the hull but after I go and ride for a few the water goes out. What could cause this could this be that the carbon seal is bad? As I have asked a couple of people that are seadoo techs and they tell me no but I am at a loss as to where this water is coming from. I am in the process of installing a bilge pump the Rule 500 GPH, was wanting to make sure that the GPH would be enough would I need to go more?

Carbon seal generally would fill it while moving but not while stationary so its not likely (also generally leaves a black line around the hull at the water level)
Id say its either drain plugs, a bolt somewhere needs sealing eg ride plate, intake grate or maybe bailer tubes are too low.

How many hours on the ski? Maybe you could use a new carbon seal anyway...and you would be ruling it out in the process. Besides, I wouldnt say absolutely "no" to the carbon seal as its a very logical place to have a leak on these skis.
