    Yes, it's possible that the *bellow* itself has lost its tension strength....very common. Its a wear and tear item in terms of it loosing its strength. the carbon ring could be just fine, its the bellow that gets soft and allows room for hole-shot cavitation and some torque. It costs $20 new.


    FYI - my info on this issue comes from an '05 RXP, and it occured on my ski at 100hrs

    Sounds like drive line bellow or seal as stated above. Could also be that if the drive shaft was out of the boat it was not put back in with the rubber bumpers causing it to shift and not keep enough tension on the drive line seals.
