drain plugs stuck!
This is the second time I have to unscrew to two plugs in the rear of the ski...
The little ball inside keeps getting stuck and not allowing my ski to drain...
How can I fix????

Pull the plugs out and remove the balls. Problem solved.
After that you MUST remember to screw the plugs in before launching. I hook a ribbon to my seat handle whenever I open the plugs to remind me to screw them in before launching. The ribbon reminds me to close the plugs. I have run all day with the plugs unscrewed with the balls in before but the balls always get stuck so I just removed them.
Before I removed the balls I would unscrew the screws, pull the assembly out and release the balls, then screw the assembly back in. Lots of trouble and a chance to cross thread the screws in the fiberglass hull. I had enough of that so I removed the balls.

yeah....just get the bilge fixed and call it a day....
if ur doing any wave jumping and submerging the ski....its the best way to go............for peace of mind ..... and just put regular plugs back in. This might be a case of less is more......
