    Angry HELP My RXT-X sank in salt water HELP

    The nut that holds the reverse cable on my RXT-X failed and my ski sank in Charlotte Harbor Fl. (salt water). The ski sat full of salt water for almost 2 days before I was able to retrive it and take it in. The dealer who was VERY helpful got the water out of the engine, got the ski running and Seadoo paid the bill under my extended warranty.

    My biggest concern is what is going to happen long term from the salt water?

    Should Seadoo cover the damage to the hull when it floated in to rocks after taking on water?

    If the bottom of the hull is just scratched up it'll be fine. You dealer did good for you on your 2008/2009 RXT-X.

    I would cut all ties with that ski. Trade it in for a new unit if it is running, and hit the hills!!!!!!

    I'm feeling the same way but what's the value of a 2008 RXT-X with 40 hours that has been sunk? It does have 2 1/2 years of warranty left.

    get rid of it bro, your luck that the warranty will expire and the electrical ghosts will appear.
