    help - water in hull.... lots of water in hull, lots and lots of water...

    hey guys, need some tips,

    today i was riding with a mate, he has a rxp 06 - dead flat water, fantastic ride - until

    his revs started to drop and he starting losing power...wont go past 5000 rpm, we instantly thought charger issues, so pulled over and pulled the seat off - ski was FULL of water... upto the fuel tank and front bucket.... OMG - this thing wasnt far off sinking...

    no previous problems, no signs of hull damage

    got the ski bacl to the ramp and looks like its sucked up water - water in oil -

    gonna dump the oil first thing ... any other tips regarding engine - water ingestion...

    also any ideas where to start looking for leaks , tips or others that have had similar probs...

    First do oil changes until you have all the water out of the engine.Then do some fogging to your engine.I suggest you to check the bailer tubes.Are the tubes high on the ski.After that check all the connections to see if you have any damaged or loosed clamp!

    Yeah I forgot the carbon seal!

    Carbon seal, carbon seal, carbon seal, carbon seal..... Hmmm, I thought this was common knowledge to anyone here in greenhulk by now

    With that much water so suddenly, I doubt it's just a clamp somewhere on a barely loose hose or bailer tube.

    don't use synthetic,it's too expensive....you can use cheap conventional oil because you're just going to be removing it until the oil is no longer milky....once the cheap oil comes back clean remove it and then put in the good stuff

    use cheap walmart supertech 10w-40 change and flush oil 3-4 times or more until the oil is not milky from water. no need to keep changing the oil filter tho just take out the old one and flush with no filter in the cannister. then after it's flushed replace with new filter and o rings and high quality oil of your choice, I prefer amsoil marine formula. fog engine and change plugs. oh and disconnect air intake hoses incase there's still water in the intake. I'd say the carbon seal went bad. wouldn't be a bad idea to invest in a bilge pump.

    Or even just that his C-clip was spit out (too much wear on it that it gets thrown from it's groove). Mine did that once and yea, that's how all hell breaks loose all at once as he seems to have described.
