    nose dive

    The other day i was out on the water and i hadn't noticed this the first few weeks of having the ski. When im slowing down to go into the marina the front dives into the water no matter how slow i slow down.

    I can stand further back and try to keep my weight at the back but she still dives under the water, the water comes up to just around the bottom of the hood. It stay like that for 10-20 seconds then it comes out of the water and everythings normal.

    Is there a problem with it or is that normal, its a 07' vx-110 and looks like it sits alot lower in the water then all the others Jetski's at the marina. Im not sure if it sits lower just looks that way.


    Thanks in advanced, Brett

    You ski is hiding, as to not scare the other lesser skis.... it's normal.

    NOSE DIVE

    A full tank of gas will do it..... i'd bet once your down to a half or less, most of the dive will go away.
    Also, trim the nose up at slow speed.

    try a full tank and a dry bag full of ice and beer in the nose.. its a submarine


    youll be fine just put a electric bilge on and then you wont have to worry even if it does take on water.

    gpr does the same thing with a full tank. front of the ski goes under anything less than 1/4 throttle thru no wake zones and slowing down

    If you have the trim to far down it will cause that to.
