Taking on water after upgrades
So when I picked up my 06 rxp a couple weeks back I took it out and had no issues. Did a x charger upgrade and a 15/20 prop. Took it out today just to see how everything goes. Ran good doing straight runs. Then I decided to do a little playing, 360 spins to be exact. After the 2nd spin the ski starting acting like there was no water. It would rev but not really do anything. After a second or two of bumping the throttle it would move but not pick up much speed. Pulled it out of the water and took the drain plugs out and the ski had water in the hull. There was about 3 inches in it No idea where it came from. Any ideas on either item?

Did the nose cone come off the prop?

If the ski is on a trailer get under it with a flashlight and see if the nose cone for the prop is still on the prop or if anything else is in there.
a small stick or anything stuck on a prop blade can do this also.

Put your stock rubber nose cone back on and retest, I bet all will be back to normal!

It's an issue in and around pump so just pull it. With an issue that obvious and major you'll spot it straight away.
Don't go out and try again, our skis don't have a failure like that and then cure themselves, at best it'll happen again, at worse it could be catatsrophic for pump, prop or even sink if it's an issue impacting on the carbon seal.
Just pull the pump.
