    Has that ski ran Salt water much? Or has it ever been apart? They will run hotter on the hose then in the water. Why the middle would be hottest is alittle strange as normally the mag runs hottest.

    Yes, it runs salt and fresh, but I always flush, this ski has never been touched, it was brand new in the crate in 2005. 150 hours, 142 psi compression, 2nd set of plugs, it has been good so far.

    OK,So corrosion in the head shouldn't be a problem. I'd try it in the water with the seat off and see how it feels.
