Thought I blew up the clutch this weekend
I was out on the lake testing my ski. I'm hauling ass across the lake when I hear a POP and my rpm's drop from 7900 to 6400. The speed also dropped and acceleration wasn't there. So here I am in the middle of a huge lake that has maybe 6 other boats out, none of which are within sight. I'm thinking I can either "enjoy" the rest of my day and just blow up the engine, it would be covered under warrantee anyway. OR I can put it on the trailer and go home after spending 10 minutes on the lake.
I decide to go to shore and see if I can find anything. I get to shore and take the seat off......to my surprise the hose coming off the SC blew off...........whew what a sigh of relief . I get out the little seadoo tool kit and pop that sucker on and tighten it as much as possible. Back out on the water for a couple hours of fun.
Lesson of the day.
1. Double check everything you have done
2. A boost leak has the same symptoms as blown clutches.

Im surprized you wait that long to get back to shore to look under the seat. I would of had the seat off right away in the middle of the lake to see what was wrong. That would of been an easy fix on the lake.
