    Water in the bilge

    yesterday we were out screwing around doing "donuts" and I ended up taking on a little more than 4 inches of water.

    After the second stall I figured I had some water in the bilge so we started the 45 minute journey back to the ramp.

    When the ski was on the trailer we opened it up and lo and behold water .

    The white storage container under the back half of the seat on the RXT was about half full.

    is there anything specific, electrical and so on, that I should check before the new ride?

    Thanks
    Scott

    If fresh water, just let it dry out and spray with bomb lube, If salt wash it with saltaway, rinse, dry and spray with bomb lube.

    Definitely fresh. I almost hate riding in salt water. If it wasn't for the people in the 2 group I ride with being such good people I probably wouldn't ride salt.

    Thanks. I guess it was a good rinse for the engine. LOL
