Clamp came loose on Carbon seal/driveshaft boot ---Updated, Bad news
Dissappointing day yesterday.
I noticed the ski cavitating badly after riding all day. Checked the intake grate area-nothing . Got back to the dock, went upstairs and started thinking....hmmmm.
Went back down to the dock and the ski was sitting real low in the water.--not good.
Pulled the seat off---half full of water.
The clamp came loose from the front of the boot that covers the driveshaft/carbon seal area. I think that it's been slightly loose since new-only 5hrs on the ski.
I noticed a little water in the hull last time I rode the ski--but nothing crazy. Big difference this weekend though---the ski sat in the water when I wasn't riding it----I was at a friends house, away from my lift.
Pulled the plugs and cranked it over (after draining of course)----no water . Checked the oil--looks fine.
I'm going to change the oil/filter tonight just to be safe.

Dropped it off at the dealer on Monday. Turns out it is the Carbon seal itself that is bad.
Is this something that I need to really watch for after it is replaced? Could my motor be out of alignment or something? The ski only has 5hrs.
I am dying to get this thing back out on the water--It was turning 8200 on Sunday with the 14/19r (Before the cavitation issue).
