    Black Dangly Bits

    Getting my ski ready for it's first outing this year. (Actually only it's 2nd outing since buying during the winter).

    Happen to look up through the grate to the impeller and noticed some a dangly black bit of what looks like seal. Also noted that the seal on the left of the grate looks all sort of, out of line.

    Is that something to worry about, or will it be fine?

    it looks like its just an over flow of silicone you will be fine...It will all go bye bye after a couple of rides!

    yes, look normal, mine has the same spots, prolly from anything nicked the surface of the shaft or minerals in water or salt water, the grade of stainless used in the prop, also isn`t 100% rust free...PR...

    Thanks for the reassurance, is it worth trying to cut it off, or you reckon just leave it?

    As for the rust... My old ski had that as well. It's used 100% in the sea, and although I always flush well after EVERY use, I guess there's always gonna bit the odd mineral left.

    Good idea to try and remove the rust or just leave it?

    That is Seadoo's idea of "fit and finish"


    Trim all the loose stuff out of there. Trim back the crap that sticks out and can cause turbulence.......
