    How to anchor ultra LX at a beach with swell?

    I have a 2008 ultra lx that has hydrolocked twice. runs fine but when left at anchor in the ocean it wont start. I am anchoring from the stern (back) of the ski on the tow hook which obviously casues the waves to push against the back of the ski/exhaust. is it possible that this is causing water to be pushed up the exhaust into the engine?

    Please help!

    No offence but that is boating 101 and is taught at every safety boating course. You never anchor anything from the stern/transom. The only exception being if you are using dual anchors, in that case you still want to be side to the waves/current or bow towards waves/current.

    Patient: Doc, it hurts when I do this.

    Doctor: Don't do that!
