    Im guessing you mean the drain plug. Yep. Happens sometimes. So, were you way out in the lake when you realized it was sinking or did you leave ut somewhere and it was sunk when you came back?

    Usually the ski will heave n ho back n forth or side to side making it hard to control. Sputtering or loss of power is water ingestion! Yikes.. pop the seat and see how to stop it. Hell.... find out WHERE its coming g in at... thats always tough to do with everything already under water....

    Drain your E-box of any water and dry it off with a hair dryer till warm.

    If you get up on plane the water will drain back out the drain hole.

    Hell ... its a real sinking feeling ... Ha Ha, I did this with by boat a Inboard-Outboard drive pontoon, I failed to put drain plug back in the center engine pontoon and it did not take long to realize something was a-miss. I had to pull boat out of water ... I was totally surprise d but some what relieved to discover the water leak was only as result of not putting the plug back in. No real damage .... but I sure did get a lot of BS from everyone about how dumb this event was. Hopefully, you did not suffer any damage ... but pride.
