I was hitting 7900 rpm when i lost all propulsion. When i came off plane i can hear what sounds like a grinding bearing when i blip the throttle. The worst part was the ski started taking on water and the bilge pump could not keep up. I got it on my lift and drained all the water and wd40 everything down but i'm trying to get and idea what i tore up. When i flushed the motor the bilge starts to fill again. Is there a way i can float this thing unto my trailer without sinking again?

The Grinding sounds like a Supercharger bearing issue, or maybe the prop came loose, and pushed your carbon seal away from the floating ring.
How many hours since the SC was rebuilt?
Look for a gap between the floating hat, and carbon seal, if the clip came out of the groove beneath the hat, u loose tension, and will see a gap & (take on water)
If water is coming in, while flushing with a hose , u may have a blown hose on the exhaust, or IC. I would start there.
