    broken through hull fitting

    hi guys...this is kind of a follow up to a post last nite.i see that the bearing carrier clamps on to the through hull fitting.my bearing carrier moves about 1 inch from the hull allowing water to come in where through hull fitting is.does that sound like the throughhull fitting is broke or unscrewed.also from underneath the fitting is real loose through the intake grate.could i leave the intake grate on if i have to replace through hull fitting? any help much appreciated

    Matt please let everyone know what year and model your ski is. And just for positive ID, please get a pic of the questionable part. Thanks

    Matt, depending on the model, I believe they're around $25.

    Matt,
    I know the exact fitting of which you speak. It should NOT be loose in any way, shape or form... at all. You may have multiple issues going on, maybe not, but just that thru-hull fitting being loose is enough to let water in the boat all by itself, and it WILL.
    It literally can become loose just like a nut and bolt, because that's what it is essentially.
    Yes, you will need to pull the intake grate to fix and/or replace whatever is in question. You will also need to pull the pump so you can get the driveshaft out.
    For those that missed my pic the first time, I'll repost it below.
    #11 goes through #12 (o-ring) and are on the inside of the hull. #13 receives #11 and is outside the hull, up inside the pump tunnel inlet. It doesn't need to be broken, all it needs is to be loose, or have a damged/missing o-ring and it will leak.
    This assembly must be tight or you will be peeing in the wind....
    Hope this helps.
