    I took it to the dock, it fired right up and was running good. The water temp was about 55* and the air was 60*. I took it out into the upper Niagara River for a short ride near shore. It ran great but the pump was cavitating, someone had put a SS wear ring in it and the clearance to the impeller was way too much. It could not get up to speed with the cavitation problem, so I brought it in. I ordered a replacement wear ring, not SS, and will install it once it arrives. With snow forecasted for Saturday, I'm done riding for the season, I winterized all my (five) skis. So any more updates to this thread will be cosmetic stuff I'll be doing to it over winter.

    Well it all sounds good other than the wear ring. The motor is the important thing NE way. Ru going to put a prop on it ?

    I am not going to change the impeller until I see what this one does first, I want to make sure this will be reliable before making modifications.

    My seat is cracked and weathered, so I picked up some marine vinyl and stainless T50 staples. My staple gun wasn't powerful enough to sink the staples so I bought an air powered Arrow stapler that uses the T50 staples.

    Since I finished my 04 SeaDoo GTX SC 4 tec rebuild in October of 2016, I have not had a chance to properly test it in the water. I did put it in the water in October of 2016 for a test only to find that my wear ring clearance was WAY out, and the ski would not accelerate. So the weather here in NY is finally getting nice and I was able to take the SeaDoo out for a real ride. I let it idle at the dock for a while until the engine warmed up, then rode around for about 30 minutes while keeping the RPMs under 5700ish. I installed an oil pressure gauge which temporarily is sitting on the engine, I stopped a few times to lift the seat and see what the oil pressure was, and it was always about 30-35 at idle after warmed up. The supercharger was also rebuilt last year, as it had the original ceramic washers. Luckily my ride was a success, as there was almost nobody out on the water if i had an issue.

    I decided to recover the rear seat today to match the front that I did last year

    I used marine vinyl, stainless T50 staples, and a pneumatic Arrow stapler. The sun and a heat gun also helped get the vinyl stretched. I left the original cover in place and just went over it
