    Water Leaking Into Hull

    Hi
    Water has started to leak into the hull of my 93 XP. After I've been out for about an hour there is probably about 5-6 inches and basically I have to come in and drain it 😂😂😂😂

    No idea where it's coming from.

    Any ideas - and can it be expensive to resolve ???

    thx

    Water Leaking Into Hull

    Fill up hull with a hose (just an little water). And see if it leaks anywhere...

    and if that doesn't show a leak double check your bilge system. You may be taking on water like normal and it does not get pumped out.

    Yes, put it on water with seat off and see where it's coming from. Could even be that the driveshaft bearing locked up and tore the thru hull extension off. They actually make a part to replace that, I've done several.

    These ski don't have a carbon seal

    Listen to r33pwrd - easiest way to find a leak is to work the process backwards. And I'll say it too - just a LITTLE water - dont fill it up!!

    make sure both bailer tubes are still installed in the reduction nozzle.

    that's right, the balier tube coming out of the nozzle will cause water to be pumped into the ski. The unasked question...hot water or cold?..that's the first sign post in diagnosing a leak

    I'm a bit out of my element here, but the OP said about 5-6 inches in the hull over about an hours time - would what you describe put water in that slow?
