    Finally I have Cavitation with the SS wear ring...

    well the ski has about 100 hours on it with about 40 of them on the SS. The thing has started to cavitate too much for my taste. Question is do you guys think it is the rubber seal or does my impeller need to have the edges welded???

    After 100 hours you need to have the edges of the impeller welded. IMPROS charges about $100 for this service.

    $100.00 for prop weld thats 2 times replacing plastic wear rings and no down time please tell me this is me just misunderstanding .i was looking forward of doing the ss wear ring and front motor mount in winter.

    just shiping along is bad, let along the down time.

    No, you only get outer edge impeller wear with the stainless.

    If you only replace a plastic wear ring every 50 hours then the SS is probably not for you. I can tell you that when i run a plastic wear ring i see performance drop off in as little as 5 hours. Thats 20 plastic wear rings over 100 hours plus the pain in the ass to have to change them that frequently.
