    2001 Polaris Genesis taking on water

    Forgive me guys if I ask a question that has been asked before. I'm new to the site and new to owning a Polaris. I have a 1998 GTX that is my ski....
    I looked in the threads and couldn't find anything that was closely related to my issue.
    I have recently purchased a 2001 Polaris Genesis for my son, 1200 red engine, 115 hours, so far everything has checked out like I expected for an older ski. What I didn't expect and this where my POLARIS knowledge is extremely limited, was the boat to start taking on water from a hole in the transom when I put the trailer in the water to test the engine and see if it was water tight.
    This "hole" is the size of my index finger and sits under the steering linkage and another hose that passes through the hull into the transom just on the starboard side of the center line. You cant see the hole from looking.....I can only put my finger there and the water stopped coming in. This hole isn't a break or crack of any kind, it's to perfectly round. I can't see where it goes through the transom on the outside either. Does anybody have any idea what this could be and what I can do? I didnt get an owners manual or shop maual for it, so I know NOTHING about the boat other than the info I have found on this site.
    I use an iPad, so I have no way of uploading photos. I can email if you need a visual. Please help, striper season starts in two days!

    Welcome

    Is this hole for the Reverse gate cable?

    Or is it very low, under the 3/4" cooling water feed hose that goes to the engine?

    Nope, it must be my equipment, I'm on iPad 1 and ios.....5? I think. The browse button is grayed out for me..
    It's on the same side as the reverse gate cable....it's just below the hose that sits next to that cable. Sorry I know I said steering linkage earlier...I meant the reverse gate cable.

    The 2001 Genesis has PERC electric Reverse, so there is a reverse motor that drives the bucket on the jet pump.

    Confirm the model year. The last four digits of the HIN number plate on the rear deck.

    Try replying in Advanced Mode. Then scroll down to Manage Attachments. Dunno if that will work better on an original iPad

    This diagram?


    This is the bilge siphon connection, looking down inside the hull.

    There is supposed to be a nipple there that connects to a clear (factory) hose. That bilge siphon hose loops up high under the rear of the seat, then connects to a metal mesh filter to vacuum water out of the hull while you are riding.

    This diagram is not from a Genesis, but item 3 is the bilge siphon nipple.

    Item 23 is the rubber hose that runs alongside the jet pump exterior. It links to the metal tube you can see sticking into the jet pump exit nozzle.

    This looks like what I'm dealing with..I can make my own right. Those hose is obviously not there anymore...but the nipple...that's the hard part. Can I RTV in place?
