I sprung a leak
Hey guys, Just got my ski back from the dealer cause my OPAS was leaking abit and now i have a major leak coming in the back of my hull out of a black valve with two holes. The water is coming out of both holes. I have attached a couple pics, and if someone could tell me what this part is and how i could go about blocking it off would be great! Let me know if you need better pics or more info

Someone has gotta know why that black piece is mysteriously all of a sudden leaking water into my hull???

You need to block that off after installing opas kit, Depending on what kit you received you should have a black bung that goes on the outside of the hull above your jet unit. Common mistake.

Sorry should have read it a bit more careful, there is a hose missing from there to OPAS, might be in the back corner.

That looks like the feed to the opas cylinders from the jet-pump.
There should be a hose in either corner at the rear that connects to this if the OPAS is still installed.
If not use the supplied bungs to stop this asap... before ya sink..
Another cure is a piece of hose from one output to the other, as in looped back.

Do you still have the OPAS paddles connected? If so, there are hoses that connect to that "t" One for left paddle and one for the right. The black hose behind the "T" is probably for the Left paddle. Looks like your dealer forgot to reconnect the hoses if indeed the OPAS paddles haven't been removed.

Oh shoot, in my first post i meant to write my OPAS block off kit was leaking so the dealer resiliconed it but now this black thing is leaking. If i have the OPAS block offs is there still a hose that is supposed to be connected or are there just caps that did not get reconnected when then they resiliconed my OPAS blockoff?
