.... easier to do then you might think
You guys probably wont believe me but, I was out with a mate, and they were breaking beautifully, so much so that the ski's were sinking up to the glove box, upon landing, after a while performance seemed very dull thought there must have been H20 in the fuel tank so headed into shore and ski was swaying, after looking around the rear deck was submerged up to the base of the seat. Then lifted the seat of and there was a few hundred litres swishing around in there. is that poor engineering...?

You should probably not jump the rxp so hard. Or invest in a smaller 2 stroke jetski like xp or ultra 150 for wave jumping.

+1, anyone who does this is asking for trouble, when all else fails read the manual and see what it says about jumping. If you're hitting hard enough to bury up to the glove box you really are abusing the heck out of your watercraft and you can't blame that on anyone but yourself.
These powerhouse 4 Techs are not puny little standups—you can break a motor mount, snap off a rev. bucket, or ruin your engine in water quickly by catching big air. Sorry you had to learn it the hard way, but if you're going to play like a maniac, be prepared to pay like one too...
