Concerned over water bubbles in Hull Material and soft texture on top of Tunnel.
My usually reliable Ski has now taken on water on the last 2 outings...... drive shaft covered.
It's a 2012 GTR 215 .. Stock .. with 70 hrs.
I'm within warranty and my Dealer will be looking at it this Monday.
However ..... what do you guys think?
Bailers are intact and ok ........ Front hatch seal is ok ...... Seat is tight and sealed.... I ran the engine on the hose for a few mins to check hoses etc again all ok ...
When I was checking the carbon seal I noticed the material just above and where the shaft comes through was soft ... I can push a finger into it... also if you look at the attached Photo it contains water bubbles.
I then filled the hull with water up to the shaft and then water drips from the grate.
It's probably cosmetic but any composite guys out there have an input?????
I'll get it on the water this weekend without the seat and have a good look.

From the drive shaft picture, looks like your carbon seal is worn, judging from the carbon dust line. This could be from an engine miss algned. Water coming from grate even more supports this.

Cheers for the reply
What would you expect the dealer to replace or is an alignment ok on its own ?

I think post 4 is right but if you can push your finger through the hull material I'd raise hell. There's no excuse for that. The whole drive line should be inspected in my opinion and repaired as needed. Don't let them make light of the problem. They don't realize that there are those of us out here who aren't rec riders who ride once or twice a season and store our machines in the back yard year round because "they're made to be outside.'
