    leaking sl750

    Hi, my Polaris during the day has been taking on water. I have looked and hunted and couldn't find out where from. This last time I went out I noticed when water splashed up and the nose dipped under the water line sometimes was when water ended up in the ski.
    I think the front compartment is leaking. Any idea how to replace the weather stripping. The knob to open my hatch is also cracked is this replaceable, it still works but is a pain in the butt.

    Doubt it's the waether strip. Have you checked your thru hull seals lately?

    All hose installed properly?

    Siphon hose clean/clear including the tiny orifice at the elbow?

    Knobs are replaceable, just a PITA to do.

    thru hull seals on the underside? I have watched and looked while floating as well as after pulling out and I am pretty sure it is not coming in from the underside.

    how would I check the hull seal?

    I found my siphon hoses were both clogged from the previous owner and I didnt know they existed. I had installed a bilge. Today I cleaned them out and there free and clear!

    Carefully ride with the seat off. Look for water running in.

    There's a TINY orifice in the plastic elbows mounted up high on the siphon hose, make sure those are clear as well.

    Ill take a look, the season is pretty much over and the ski is in the garage getting any repairs I can make so a water run will have to wait a few months
