    This is why we rinse skis after saltwater use

    Had to cut the prop shaft to get this one out. You would never guess by just looking at the ski as the hull on this 99' XLT1200 (a 66v) is nearly perfect... an easy 9.0. But mechanically a big mess.

    I'll tell you what's really funny. Someone plugged that corroded hole in the coupler with what looks like one of those red SBT spark plug plugs filled with silicone. That means this was done during a motor swap probably at a shop. Geez.

ID:	326176 I feel your pain, this gpr1200 was supposedly a freshwater ski w 80 hours.. very clean ski, besides the oily bilge. Every bolt came out easy except the drive shaft...I tried lubricants, slide hammer, puller, long prybar, air chisel finally had to saw it, man it always amazes me how hard some drive shafts are

    Not only that but the midwall itself also deteriorated. Had to do some minor glasswork.
    That one baffles me.
    Pics are in my sig around pg 4
