    Hull question (water)

    Just a question... Got a 2011 RXT X aS... Already sunk a RXT IS 2009... If there is water in hull after beaching, is it true that if I run WOT the water will exit the hull???

    Probably would not be a bad idea to install a bilge pump, as the water will not exit very fast if it has a lot in it thru the factory drain plugs.

    What is the deal with all these "water in hull" posts with Seadoo's? I rode the piss out of my 2003 Aquatrax and never had a drop in the hull. I'm kinda concerned now that I have a Seadoo.

    My question is if there is some water in hull, will it exit when running fast??? Or will it exit after I remove the plugs outside de water on the trailer?

    theres been problems with the suspension models with water in hulls and sinking.. i think it was a carbon seal problem they have fixed in the newer models. i personally have nearly sunk two doos... one being a problem i neglected (96 spx) and the other being a problem the dealer neglected (06 gtx).

    the the bailer system will remove water inside the hull.. but not an extreme amount.. i second the opinion of adding a bilge system

    The siphon hoses are only going to remove a little water at a time.

    Install a Bilge pump or 2 and your good to go.
    Bilge pumps are about 100$
    They are a lot cheaper than a sunk ski replacement.
    Put the water exit hole where you can see it so you know when your having water come into the hull.
