    Another Snap Crackle Pop for a Texas rider

    It must have been bad mojo for all the texas riders this weekend,

    I took the ski for a quick run to try some new sponsons and in less than a minute high temp alarm, goes off ski shutters and stops,
    I open up the seat and it is full of white smoke and the engine bay is filling with water (OH CRAP) nowhere to beach nothing but big rocks,
    I turned on the bilge pump and was able to restart and run with the seat off to get me closer to shore, I notice no water coming out my overflow bleed line for the EX IC, stopped engine and I jumped in the water to raise the back of the ski out of the water,
    Another jet ski was coming by, I flagged the guy down, he towed me back to the ramp slowly, pulled the ski out, bilge was dry, thank goodness for a bilge pump,
    I found the intake water line from the pump was off, the Stainless Steel hose clamp had broken by the screw part,
    Got home took muffler and mid pipe out and looked at all the silicone hose connections and the only hose that was cooked was the mid pipe hose itself,
    I can't find any other problems so I replaced mid pipe hose, all back together and started it on the hose, no water leaks, hopfully good to go,

    I am just glad it happened so close to the ramp and I wasen't about an hour out,
    see picture of mid pipe hose

    YUP, waterbox is the last to get water, especially the top squirter... Since it got hot enough to melt the rubber, I can only imagine how hot that aluminum got...

    I had the same line pop loose once. It does not give ya that warm-fuzzy feeling.
    Glad you made it back to the ramp without sinking. Yikes

    I took the intercooler out and wanted to check the hose coupling for the exhaust nozzle and I noticed the inside plastic felt weird, see picture, I am just glad I did not sink, or catch the ski on fire,
    the stock exhaust hose pieces I used to connect the riva exhaust look perfect, and my blue silicone coupling is good also,

    now I am in the market for a stock exit nozzle,
