    Hole shot sucks

    Hello friends,
    I have a 2005 Sea Doo Wake 155 with 96 hours. I bought it this year in April with only 60 hours. In the beginning of the year we rode the hell out of them and had a blast. After taking a few buddies out on the river the ski started to bounce off the rev limiter out of the hole and wouldn't take off after a quick turn. I replaced the wear ring and impeller as they were a little beat up. The problem is better but still no real hole shot. It was awesome in the spring and early summer. What else could be causing the occasional rev limiter hitting and crappy hole shot. Dealer told me there are no problems.
    Thanks
    Curt

    Carbon seal could be leaking, under acceleration, Or a broken engine mount

    I had already looked for that.
    Very mininal water in the hull after a full day of screwing off. A few drips is all.
    I also checked the engine mounts and all seemed well.
    I'm stumped. I have been all over the

    I know you have a new prop and wear ring, but did you actually measure the clearance between them before re-installing the pump?
    I ask because I have installed a brand new wear ring before where the clearance was more than the worn one I was replacing.

    I will check that and get back to you.
    It's an sbt wear ring if that matters. I have seen mixed reviews about them.

    I think the clearance should be less than .014" or .35mm at the center of each blade.
