300x Wave Jumping
I assume most of you know the story with my 300x (impeller came off - new engine), but before that happened i used to wave jump regularly but since then im too worried that jumping waves could possibly cause the impeller to come off again? Im just wondering if i can ever go wave jumping without having to worry?

Well I never had the same issue as u but I have jumped my ultra vertical and with landing on a 60' impeller first a lot with no issues I recall some guys saying early 300's had loose props. Just do it

Have you seen the way the offshore racers abuse their skis. I am not saying it is safe to ride a ski like that even though I do because no MFG recommends riding their product like that.
Just if you do ride harder or more abusive than the recommended normal operating suggested by the MFG keep a much closer eye on things and perform more regular and careful pre and post ride inspections.

yeah im pretty sure it was the loose prop issue that caused you too loose it you should be fine jumping. Just get some locktite on it and check it every once in a while!

It's not coming off if its loctighted and installed properly

Exactly. The prop didn't come off because you were wave jumping. It probably had more to do with the predelivery checks not being done. I personally haven't had any issues from jumping waves, but at saying that, depending how hard you land, really anything could happen. I find a blast across a choppy bay feels more abusive than a few good jumps.

Yeah seeing what the offshore racers go through, wave jumping shouldn't be much of an issue! The prop is loctited and was checked recently. I haven't landed very hard at all over the years but i do get pretty vertical. So it should be fine for jumping i hope
