    What's your take on this?

    I have an antifreeze leak. I bought a borescope and was looking around under the engine, and I see that the leak is right at the plastic piece where the coolant hoses all come together at the water pump. I see no traces of coolant on the plastic, just on the bottom of the hull below the plastic.

    There is no leaking forward of there that I can tell.

    I cannot find exactly where it is leaking though. I can tell you that all the hoses and clamps are dry throughout the whole ski (Where the coolant would run), no leaking at the oil cooler.......

    I felt my hand all around the plastic piece where the hoses al come together, and I cannot find the friggin leak.


    I also have a fresh water leak and it appears to be coming in right at the zip tie grommet, where the fresh water hoses go up to the IC and to the J-pipe. That zip tie grommet I assume goes into the inner layer of the hull (Between the layers). The grommet is right below and just aft of the port side engine mount bracket.

    I took a very violent spill last year after hitting a 5' cabin cruiser wake at about 60 mph. This is when I started having the issues with leaking.
    I looked over the hull completely and there are no cracks, pulled the grate, no cracks, replaced the carbon ring thinking it was the issue,,,,,,, nope.

    Whats your take on both of these issues? What would you do next to run down these problems?

    I did. I kept the ski tied down to the trailer and backed it in the water. Water seems to be coming in on the left side where the rear zip tie grommet is holding the water hoses going to the IC and the exhaust.

    The coolant leak seems to be coming from the PTO Housing, there's a little hole to indicate if the internal seal is damage/leaking.

    I had a leak one time and it was the ride plate clamps that come through the hull..... I removed the stock clamps installed band clamps fixed it.. I never found it til I ran it on the hose in the driveway for a while.
