    Looking at new 2014 RXT or GTR

    Hey all,
    I'm in the market for a new ski and decided to stop by the dealership.
    They had a new 2014 RXT260 (standard edition) out front, foot wells full of water (dirty rain water) and not too inviting.
    I decided to look it over cause I've not seen one up close ever.
    I loved it to say the least...
    But what stood out to me is the rear deck access ports I guess you'd call them.
    They seemed to be warped already and I could lift up the corner slightly.
    I doubt tightening up the bolts on these plates would do anything because it was warped.
    Isn't this a bad design? Wouldn't that just let salt water pour into your hull?
    Is this how the older ones are too?
    I was really put off buying the RXT just by looking at these access port covers.
    Thoughts? Facts?

    mine is a leftover 2013 RXT-X 260... my covers are fine.. no water entering the hull from them.. I have a friend with a 2011 RXT-X 260 and his covers are not warped either.
    I would say that If you bought it you should have the covers replaced by the dealership before you take delivery.

    What is the purpose of those covers?
    Do they make aftermarket ones?

    I have heard of people adding their own extra gasket rubber on those access doors if they have leaky ones.

    access ports are an issue in FL. They seem to be a common leaky problem

    I'd think that a couple self tapper screws would be the cure. Is that ever done?
