    The Ultra is the worst ski I have ever seen regarding water tightness. I have tried everything to keep the water out and have been only mildly successful. I wanted to use this ski for surf towing but it can't hack it.

    Seat Flexing

    Did you know that the 07's seat flexes? That breaks the seal and
    lets water in. You can tighten up the holding bolt, it helps.

    The 08's have some added plastic ribs to stiffen seat.

    I ride in rough conditions all the time and not a drop of water inside.

    My 06 seadoo gti I had always had water/saltspray in it.

    Must be the 08 seat.
