What's Gotten Sucked Up Into Your Jet Pump??
What's gotten into your jet pump? During last summer, Pale Rider found this nice big chunk of wood stuck on the prop in the starboard jet pump of the Challenger 1800 boat.

A few years back I sucked up rock the size of my fist on my 96 XP. Locked it up and bent the drive shaft. The RXP have tried to be darn careful.

Drop line from a fishing marker was sucked up in the pump once. Also was with group of friends when one of them pulled in a tow rope in a no wake zone.

A dam rope got sucked up for mudbugs 2 year ago and got in back the impeller and pushed the seal in that goes to the bearings which caused water to enter the bearing housing.

about 3 feet of shrink wrap in the middle of march in the wide open bay when water temps were in the high 30s and no one was in site... had to milk it at idle for over an hour to get back to the ramp

On August 17, I sucked up a human hand.
Called the Sherriff, it was pretty badly decomposed apparently floating for a while. Forensic team pulled it out, still haven't heard anything back as to who's it was, kind of creepy, see photo below...
Nahh, I'm just kiddin...
but I did get a cypress stick in the RXT and one in the FX140 before that.
