    Broken motor mount from wave jumping?

    How many of you have broken motor mounts from wave jumping? Did your ski sink?

    I'm guessing that when the motor mount goes the carbon ring gets pulled out of position which would be the reason for the sinking.

    With the carbon seal set-up it will take on water if the engine moves out of alignment wich is what ussualy happens when you break mounts. I have had it happen on a couple different boats.

    Carbon seal cant seal if a mount is broken.

    Just wondering. I was told dont jump waves because I will break a mount and sink my ski. Just curious how many others had this problem. I love wave jumping.
