    Ummmm, what gasket????

    There is no gasket under the intake grate. There is a rubber gasket sealing the pitot for the speedometer in the water intake area. (white plastic shark fin)

    That we also found but that is not where the leak is it is coming from the tube and goes into the ski itself. I just assumed it was the drive shaft. If that is not it. What is the pipe that is leaking do you know. Any help would be greatful. We are such beginners on these. Don't know much about it.

    I think we figured out it was not the drive shaft it is the housing for the bearings it is leaking where it comes out of the hull. Is there and easy fix to that.
