Thread: Sinking Issue?

ok well we usally keep my jet ski in the water all summer next to my boat at the marina well we are having to take it home every weekend because its taking in water over night! Well its a 45min drive and it takes a hole lot more gas to be pulling the jetski so we have been tryin to find the leak. Well first we thought it was where one of the sponson bolts poped out so we filled it in. No pravail. So could it be leaking from the intake grate or rideplate because last time we took those off we didnt seal them back? If thats not the case could it be pump seals and i really hope thats not the case.

From what I have heard around here, you should put the ski on the trailer and fill the bilge with water to the level you found in it after sitting in the water overnight. Then, check the hull to see where the water is leaking out from. That will be the source of your leak.

Probably coming in through the intake grate bolt holes. I had one do that to me before. Push it into about 3 feet of water, take the seat off, then get up on it and watch where the water is coming in. It will probably take you a few minutes to find it.
