    you need to put some vents in it. If water gets on top of that the vibration of the engine will bounce the water right into those TB's. put some vents in like a Loover and water will drain off but not be able to splash up.

    I have thought about putting a plate like that on the back right runner to keep water in the middle of the ski and not even get over that far.

    its angled in two ways


    higher in the front than back and also angled so that water drains toward the motor
