Rxt-x 260 cracked hull
Well I'm not sure if I'm the first but my hull cracked in the tunnel. She started taking on water pretty good so changed the carbon seal hoping it was that but it wasn't. The hull cracked all around the thru-hull that the driveshaft runs through. Anyone have any insight on what could have cause this. Didn't suck anything up. Just out cruising and noticed my bilge running.

HAHAHA HOWS THE S3 HULL NOW SCOTT? too much water pressure coming in on these couches and PXs...

Sorry to hear about this - I thought we were done with tunnel stress cracks with the S3 hull..............
I'd check mine, but my ski is in the shop for probable pto shaft seal oil leak.................

15 hrs on mine and I am doing the o2 sensor drill/tap procedure tonight on it and will have a look at that area. It seems no one has pump tunnel pressure info on these skis at speed so I guess we are going to look into it.....

Yeah you can see the stress cracks on the outside of the hull. Dealer told me that yes BRP was going to warranty it.

Yeah ski is at the dealer but he took some photos for me. I'll post them when I get them.
