    Am i cavitating? How?

    Well I can jump out of the water in my rxp's off the start just by wot, but in one of the rxp's, it wont even jump out of the water, it just sits there and spins. I know its cavitation. What happened to my ski to make this happen (bone stock)? How can i fix it

    only 55 hours

    Put your pump in the freezer, take out the plastic wear ring, replace with new wear ring.

    55 hours on a stock wear ring is a long time. Definately time to replace or get a SS one and be done with it.

    Take the intake grate out and look at the impeller area with a flashlight and see how the wear ring looks. With 55 hours I'm assuming you should have some wear marks on it.
