    With the siphon and the electrical bilge pump there should never be a massive amount of water in the hull. When I blocked the siphon and un pluged the electrical bilge pump I was amazed how much water was actually getting in some hulls on several of these skis. If you ski is free of leaks and you don't take any water in from splashing water up on the hood/stearing aera your ski should be totaly dry inside. All the ski i have checked always have water in there hull even after drying them out good prior to a ride. Tommy Jordan

    I've never even monitored this too much, atleast not to the point of how, why or when. I often check the hull for water just as a precaution but I never pay attention to how I was riding. I usually ride pretty hard and get wet but I'll have to check it out when I'm not dousing myself in the lake to see if it's getting water. There is never much in there but it's always present and never dry.

    My 2009 FX SHO always rode wet and accumulated small amounts of water. My 2012 FX SHO for what its worth stays dry as a bone. Never could find the source on my 09.

    Same here, my 2012 FX SHO is bone dry after a ride (ocean, lakes, rivers).

    my new 2012 VXR has had a little water from day one (14 hours now) my 2009 FZR has always had a little bit of water (140 hours) and my GPR big bore always had water as did my ultra 150.......If I were to look under the seat and not see water I would become suspicious....imho the only problem I ever had from this water was the time a rat got into my garage and wanted a drink...damm rat gnawed the duck bill off the GPR to drink.!

    LOL, that's awesome

    My 2012 VXS's have a little bit of water in the back of the hull after a 3 hour ride. I mean like 1/16th to 1/8th of an inch. Nothing comes out of the plugs. I haven't touched the plate or grate or anything either, all stock.

    +1 same on my VXR. I suck it out with a wet vac and leave the seat off in the sun for 30-40 minutes.

    The only completely dry late model ski I've seen was SHOdude's SHO after I did his tunnel reinforcement. Obviously his had previously been leaking a little from the shoe inserts, but I think the culprit in most skis is the transom plate.
