How much water should come over the back end?
I have a 3 person GTX and notice that even with only myself onboard... All 165lbs of me water comes over the back of the ski when slowing down or at a stop. No water in the engine compartment but it is pretty freaky seeing it start to come into the foot wells. Should the back end be that far down in the water?

All Yamahas, of the the older styles even GPs seam to fill up with water in the foot wells. Just as soon as you start to take off & plain out "Pressto" the water is gone !

I never get water over the back even with 3 people on my ski. Unless I use the breaks and stop fast then a little comes over. But normal slowing down/stopping I don't ever get water over the back.

I had a ski almost sink on me the first time I had ever rode it and it has turned me into a worry wart. All I do is check to make sure water isnt coming in.

Put some Bilge pumps in your skis.
It never hurts to be thinking ahead.
