    4-stroke Seadoos have check valves in there... little plastic balls that stop water from getting in the hull if u leave them open

    thank god for them, huh?

    i left my ski IN THE WATER overnight in the middle of a dead calm bay with nothing but a sandbag anchor once... woke up the next morning and realized what i did, ran down to the water and there wasn't a drop of water in the hull...

    real simple and effective setup seadoo did with them

    IF u corner HARD and IF the little white balls are still in your bailers......then MAYBE they are lodged in the end of the bailers like they do QUITE OFTEN...........IF they are then they are NOT letting water in and they are NOT ejecting water at speeds from pump propulsion vacum either..........u take a flash light and u can tell after u remove the screw in plug itself and shine the light up in there.....if they are lodged i take something that will poke through the small holes on the bailers inside the boat and unlodge them and i REMOVE them........if thats not it then u just GOT LUCKY and never stayed to long in one spot while riding so when u were moving the water naturally elected out the drain holes.......i would guess one or the other!!!!!!!! good luck!!!!!
