    Taking on Water

    Out on the river today on my 2011 GTX I/C I/S after about 30 minutes into the ride I could tell my Ski was taking on water I headed back to the landing and could only get about 6500 RPM's and the ski was surging a bit . when I would let off the throttle the ski would hesitate a little while picking up speed. Got the ski on the trailer and did not pull the drain plugs right away to see if the water would leak back out somewhere. There was no evidence of water leaking back out. When I did pull the plugs the water was very hot it took a while for the water to drain back out. After it did I put the drain plugs in and put the ski back in the water and let it float around while I was sitting on it for about 15 minutes then took it out and pulled the drain plugs and no water came back in. Anyone got any ideas!!! Ski has 82 Hours on it.

    huh? did water exit the hull once you open the hull drain plugs? might want to check your carbon seal, water will enter if it's bad. also check to see if you picked up any fishing line wrapped around your drive shaft that might of damaged your seal. if you suspect that it's coming from your engine, run it on the hose and/or on the trailer in the water and see if anything leaks.

    When I took the drain plugs out the water was real hot. I did run it on the hose and did not see any leaks. The I/S is hard to look into without lifting the top. I will be lifting the top so I can see all the exhaust hoses at once. I know there was an issue earlier models having some hose clamps come off. I feel this might be the case because of power loss and the hot water in the hull.

    No warning buzzers? I had my cooling line come off my manifold once and got a hot temp buzzer almost imediately!

    No fault codes at all. I was about 10 miles from the boat landing and new I had to keep my speed up so the bailing tubes would do their job so I ran about 50 to 55 all the way and no warnings at all came on.

    Would a fault code come up if the hose coming from the exhaust manifold to the water box was loose and pumping water into the hull?

    Yes it should the temp sensor is located at the waterbox outlet. #6 is the sensor check the hoses and resonator after the waterbox outlet.
