    Check the cooling hoses coming from the pump.
    One of them popped.
    Put it in place and tighten it correctly.
    If you do a search in May - June 07 posts you will even find pics.
    It is a very common symptom on 07's.
    Happened to almost everybody.

    somewhat on the same subject. but not quite...

    anyone notice air escaping your stock sponsons when submerged. are the sponsons suppose to take in water. or possibly leaking into the hull. both sponsons do it. i dont ahve a problem with water in my hull. anyways, check out your crafts sometime and see if its normal. thanks.

    I guess its the air caught behind the sponson bubbling out when it first get put under water

    or do they bubble all the time?

    i havent had them off. so i didnt know there was air pockets behind sponsons. but if thats the case then thats what im seeing. got me worried for a bit that maybe my sponsons into my hull had started leaking. i stopped at a sandbar and thats when i noticed. ill keep a closer eye. thanks.

    probably loose exhaust hose. I checked mine at 10 hours and some were loose. The dealer is suppose to check/tighten them at the ten hour but they usually dont.
