7/16 drill bit dropped into hull
Pulled a "Oh..$#iT last evening when I dropped a 7/16 drill bit into the hull. It resides somewhere beneath the 4-Tek. Was using the bit as the handle as I tightened the Denso Iridium plugs. Of course it was after I had tightened the last plug...
So...Is this a big deal...or should I just let it sit.

No worries! Look for it towards the back of the hull after your next ride

lol, I could build an engine with all the stuff that has inhabited the bottom of my hull. I've grown fond of magnetized tools, screws bolts and nuts

I have a nice telescoping magnet that works great for getting shit out from under the engine.....I dropped a socket and when i went to get it out I pulled out the socket and the screw driver bit that comes in the seadoo tool kit....the prevous owner must have dropped it in there lol

pretty sure they buried Jimmy Hoffa under the 800 in my GTX.......he's a hungry bastard and eats tons of nuts, bolts, and a couple allen wrenches.

Oh, I drop lots of tools. I have a magnet on a flexible shaft. Using this, and almost every one of the above solutions, usually gets it out using the flexible magnet tool.

Dropping a tool, a vital screw, bolt or nut and stripping a screw are three of the few things in this world that make me say things that I will have to answer for one day

if you are flexible, straddle your ski and slowly menuver your arm around the exhaust manifold...once your elbow is passed it, you can access the whole area underneath....if its farther back, turn around and use your right....
I figured this out while dropping tools and fishing them out...and I had a broken right hand!
