  • Stx15f taking on water while stored out doors

    Hi folks, I have 2 X 2010 Stx 15's and one will fill up with clear (what I believe is rain water) while sitting on my EZ docks. The seat seems to fit like normal, no holes in the ski that I can see anywhere. Only one of the skis has this issue. When I ride it the ski does not have any water in the hull. Just when it sits and we get a lot of rain there will be 2-3 inches of water in the engine compartment.

    Any info appreciated.

    That's a lot of water from rain.

    Check the seals around the front storage box, the fuel filler, the glove box, the air intakes, the handlebar mount, etc.

      Do you have a cover or no cover? Do you always park them in the same spot? It could be getting in through the vent hoses where the seat latch is.

      The older I get, the more I find myself fixing things that I knew I was doing correctly at the time.‚Äč
