    Water in hull

    Hi, just another question ?
    after 5 min run on ski no matter what the conditions, always find a good quantity of water in the hull, the level is up to the bilge pump under the exhaust ! is this normal ? and yes the drain plugs are in !!
    are all sho cruisers the same ?.

    No matter how wet & wild I get on my SHO cruiser, I don't think I've ever seen enough water in it for anything to come out of the drain plugs at the end of the day, even after being out for several hours.

    Usually there's only about 1/2in of water at the very back of the hull where the shaft goes through the hull. A few oz, max; the rest of the hull is bone dry.

    Sometimes i go out from 9/10 in the morning and dont pull up until 5. Even when i lift the front up all the way, theres nothing coming out the drain plugs, theres just not enough. A few oz max is right.

    I get a cup or two of water in my SHO after a days ride. I always suck it out with a shop-vac. It also seems to be a little oily. I've been keeping a eye on the oil level so I don't think it is leaking. I think (hope) the oil is from the factory fix on the drive shaft. Any thoughts? Inside of hull has a oily film on bottom.
