    S200 ride plate sealing

    Hows she going guys. Thanks to this info on this site, I picked up a hold over S200. I've got about 2 hrs on it now, and I have a cavitation problem out of the hole. The wear rings look fine (going to measure clearance tonight), so I'm thinking the ride plates aren't sealed all that well, as the carbon seals are not leaking water into the boat. I was thinking of wrapping a nylon strap around the boat and lifting it with a front end loader, as the ride plates sit on the trailer bunks. How has everyone else done this, and do you guys see any problems with this method of lifting? Sorry for the long post, and thanks it advance.

    Ya,we have some great sledding. To bad the forest service is trying to shut everything down. Anyway, after looking at the trailer tonite, I'm thinking I may just try to slide the boat back a foot and a half.

    Cavitation comes from the impellers not seating directly next to your wear ring. This is usually the case if your wear rings are worn out. If it's a new boat I would bring it back to the dealer and tell them about the problem. If it's still under warranty they should fix it for you.
