    More air into hull

    finally done it, been trying to find the time when my ski has been home, not taking the credit for this one as im sure others have gone this way.
    brought an oem air duct and gasket and used one of my removed rear hoses, mounted it beneath the fairing on the rhs. angled the airhose to the rear of the ski ontop of the fuel tank.

    Looks good mate! Is your hose fastened really good to the air intake? I only ask because your new air inlet is almost directly above your air intake megaphone. You would not want the hose to come off on a rough day and potentially give some water an easy access to the air intake megaphone

    A great idea . . . JB

    That's pretty sweet! Too bad in stock class we can't have any Hull mods that increase air intake.

    Looks very sea worthy Nicjak . . . I would feel 100% secure on your boat in even the biggest waves at Bell's Beach in Victoria. I did not know that they moved the air intake to the other side of the boat (Sir B pointed that out in Post #3).

    you've been watching to many movies jb that bells footage is from over your way lol bells isnt the best place to ride a ski, theres nothing there but cliff tops and hang gliders, oh and lots of surfers that dislike jet skis.

    Nicjak, did you permanently remove the protective cover that is in front of the oem air ducts for more air?
