    2000 GTI Hull leak

    Hi Guys. New to the forum.

    I have a 2000 seadoo GTI, and i had left it in the water for 24 hrs. I opened up the hull and the water was over the battery.

    It seems to leak in if I leave it in the water.

    I hooked the hose up too it, and ran it on the trailer and no water leaks from the exhaust or any hoses.

    Any ideas?

    Carbon seal around the drive shaft.

    I agree. If the carbon seal isn't tight enough against the stainless mounting surface or if it is worn out or if not aligned properly it will leak. Also check for broken motor mounts. With no water in the hull back your ski into the water and with a flashlight look around to see if you can find the leak. I had a leak once and the water was coming in where the steering cable exits the back of the hull. A little silicone fixed it right up.

    Also make sure the bailer tubes are fastened up high in the hull. If these lay near the bottom of the hull water will come in through the bailers.

    Theres a hose cluster that has a plastic "T" on it. It was common back in the day for those to break so check that

    Yes the bailers are connected as they should be up nice and high.
    Come to think of it they never do bail out any water though.
    Could they be clogged?
