    Water Leak

    So I went out today and since i havent used my ski in a while i decided to lift the seat cowl off and to my suprise there is about 3 to 4 inches of water in my ski. Last time I was out I noticed some water in the ski but figured it was some jumping. So the ski was sitting in the water for about a minute and started for about another minutes so what do you guys think carbon seal??????

    Check Your Carbon Seal And All The I/c Water Hoses And Clamps To See If It Is Getting Loose Or Broken....

    It could be your carbon seal or a tear in the bellow. I would pull the seat and seat base and after draining it put it back in the water and watch/listen for the leak. If you dont see anything I would check the water lines to and from the exhaust. If you still dont see anything I would start it up and ride with seat off while watching for water spray.

    Check your thru-hull exhaust tip and your bailer tubes. The gasket could've leaked or a zip tie could've easily snapped.

    pour a 5 gal bucket of water into the hull and watch underneath where it comes out. If no luck then strap the back down and back the trailer into the water and then look inside with a mirror and chk spons bolts etc..you should see water coming in with it strapped and sunk on the back of the trailer.

    Hey, Jammer, please direct our fellow friend here to my bilge post before he ends up like Seac Cousteau searching for a lost treasure.

    Check your carbon ring, or drive shaft seal...
