    Yep. Now I'm aggravated...

    So I went to launch the ski just now...
    I didn't realize the water was so damn low (murky water here in Louisiana you cant see but a couple inches down). I got on and started the ski, let it warm for a few minutes and then went to take off. Bad idea. I immediately came to a stop and started sucking up mud and grass and stuff. I pulled the ski back on the trailer by hand and discovered the intake grate all the way back into the prop is clogged as hell. I don't know if I need to just cut all the grass out, or if I'll be looking at a new wear ring. What's the easiest way to get to the prop and all to cut all this out and assess the wear ring issue?

    just pull it out.. i'm sure the wear ring is fine if it's just grass and weeds.. no worries. grab some handfulls.

    Yeah but it's wrapped around the prop also, So pressure washer will be the only way without taking it apart.

    Also, how do I make the reverse/brake bucket stay up? Do I have to take it off?

    Ok, got it all out - and it was in there frickin thick.
    Launched it again at a different launch. Ran just fine so I'm guessing the wear ring is ok.
