    What's (read: WTF is) a rotary seal? It sounds like either the ride plate is leaking at the 2 hose fittings in the hull or one (or more) of the screws that tighten the 2-piece ride plate together... Ron

    Tom...Im no professional...BUT does it seem like it is leaking from under the motor or toward the back of the ski say as were about the ride plate is???There are only a few places were anti-freeze can acually leak into the ski,Thermostat housing ,rideplate,overflow tank,oil cooler,hoses or head gasket..The rotary seal is the seal behind the water pump impellor in the block/cover..If that is leaking then anti freeze will leak out the pisser hole on the bottom of the water pump/thermostat housing..Therefor when you replace the rotary seal you have to also replace the oil seal that goes behind the rotary seal..So If your seeing antifreeze leaking toward the back of the motor near the driveshaft then its very possible the rotary seal is bad......
