    2011 GTI capsized, feels heavy?

    OK, I am really new. I bought this for my kids to use on spirit lake Iowa.

    They dumped it. It started right up. Starts and runs fine.

    I opened the seat and there is no visble water in the bilge.

    Is it possible that there is water below in the Hull?

    It feels a bit heavier when steering now. Seems to slide more then turn.

    I have it on a hoist, when I pull the plugs nothing comes out?

    Thanks for your patience with me.

    probably just your imagination, if you cant see the water there cant be much in there. Is it possible they hit anything or beached it hard and damaged something in in the steering/sponson area

    how about the seat soaking up a bunch of water?

    i know i wish i'da had the seatfoam on the GTR wrapped in plastic before i started riding it. Now i dunno if it'll ever have a chance to fully dry.

    I had my PX seat wrapped before the ski hit the water...Seat never takes on water!!! Been doing that for years
