    06 FX HO taking on water

    Sorry guys only an iPhone and the search did not give me much info...on vacation north Canada so not very good reception...my friends fx ho took on water today noticed it was sitting low so pulled it on beach full of water...bilge working and it seems it is still taking on water while not even running...would you say some kind of pump shoe seal? Starts no issues...what should we do next besides not put it back in water.

    Thanks for the help

    well check where there is water coming in from....put the ski on the trailer and fill the hull with water with a garden hose and see where's the water is coming from...

    if this is a salt water ski or a ski with over 400 hours good chance there's a chance its main shaft bearing seal is taking water..basically coming from main shaft seal...

    I just had to do this on my GPR. Fill it with water and see where it leaks. Just make sure to drain everything and dry it out after.

    Lake only and about 70 hrs...looks like I will have him fill it up and see where the leak is. Has anyone heard of this on this model and year with low hours...hull is in great shape.

    Not at all...Very strange, low hours and lake only.
    I would back up the trailer without the ski running and see if he sees any water coming in. If not, he should start the engine and observe to see if then the water starts coming in. Depending on where the problem is, filling the ski may or may not help.

    Forgot to come back to this...filled hull with water...no issues...hooked up hose and bingo...a hose came loose back in business...thanks for the responses.

    There was a recall on the hose clamps on that model. I suspect it is still valid, and if you take the ski to a dealer they should replace all the old hose clamps with new ones.
