    Hull Flooding Leak question

    Had my first problem yesterday. after riding pretty hard I got near shore and engine started sputtering, got overheat message. Pulled out of the water and there was at least six inches water in the hull. The water coming out of the drainholes was warm, as if had been thru the engine first. This morning hooked up to the hose, and same thing. water coming out of drain holes warm and filling up fast. Checked oil, looks good. Engine runs fine, no codes now. Could not see anything leaking high up. Anyone have a pic of what I need to check?

    check all of your couplers and hoses.... more than likely you popped a hose off somewhere

    remove the rear seat base cap screws (10mm socket) this will give you access to the intercooler and all the couplers and hoses... you should find your culprit there

    Check all your thru hull fittings. One had to come off. My guess is starboard side top fitting.

    found it. It was the hose that discharges right above the pump, thru hull. Put back on, tightened all and no problem. Thank god no dealer visit required.
