    bilge tubes

    could someone please send a picture of where the stock bilge lines go on a stock RXP (2006) as I bought one from a previous owner and they had done some work on and they are just tied up where ever and the ski seems to be taken on water some where. Also would any one know why the balls in the drain plugs get stuck and doesn't allow the water to drain out while out on the water riding the ski? I have to use a pick to get the balls to drop back so the water will drain out.

    thanks for anyones help

    Is there a pump wedge installed?

    Wedge doesn't matter here. They are clogged with random stuff. Take a hose and spray into the drains and then do the same from inside the hull. I usually pour some liquid plummer (diluted) and it will break it up. Do not put full strength in there. I was advised against it. Works for me. Clears the lake gunk out of the drains.

    The reason I asked about the wedge is on my friends 07 RXT, the wedge was not sealed where the bailers get their suction, which allowed water to travel backwards and enter the hull.
    Once that area was sealed the hull remained dry.
