    dropped a nut and bolt in bottom of ski.

    i dropped a nut and a bolt trying to install my cold air bucket mod on my 15f. i went to lowes and got a magnet thinking i could fish them since i cant even see them. i think there under the motor. the magnet ended up not working and i have no idea how to get them out. anyone have any creative ideas??????

    Tilt your ski up and stick the hose in and take the plugs out, thats what I had to do. It will either come out the plugs or be at the back where the plugs are.

    i dont think this would be a good idea on a 15f. there is alot of electrical components towards the back that could get wet doing this. what i thought about doing was dropping my jack on my trailer so the jetski would be tilted forward. then pour some water in behind the motor and maybe the nut and bolt would slide forward where its easier to get to.
    does anyone think this would work??????????? i also thought maybe running it on a hose while setting like this they might vibrate to the front. its driving me crazy not being able to get them out!!!!!!!!!

    there is no room if you try to move it foward. +1 on goin to the back. stick a hose down infront of the engine while the bow is tipped up.
