    Does it also take on water when just floating at the dock?

    Has the through-hull driveshaft bearing carrier ever been serviced? It is recommended that the shaft seals and bearings be replaced every few years.

    Are the two bilge suction hoses in place and the mesh intakes on the ends clean? When the jet pump is running these two bilge hoses are supposed to provide mild suction to draw out small amounts of water that may get inside the hull.

    Have you observed the running engine compartment with the seat off? Perhaps a water cooling hose is leaking under pressure.
