    ski nearly sank today

    180 hours on original carbon seal and i think today it let go, ski was sounding different and back end of ski was sinking, just made it back to ramp, looked under seat and water was over the supercharger height. so i have drained water and flushed and fogged motor and sprayed lube in TB and supercharger, checked oil its not milky, and removed spark plugs and no water was in cylinders. anything else i need to do while i wait for parts, could water get into anywhere else like air intake, think il get a bilge pump too.

    I would just keep the seat off and let it air dry inside as well as you can.

    If it sunk in salt water you should wash it with saltaway and or spray down with xps anti corrosive spray, then let it dry.
