  • Water from back in 2011 GTI SE130

    With the engine off, when I drop the ski (on its lift) to this line (see picture) water starts to come in from the very back of the ski (on both port and starboard side). I cannot see the origin (yet) as it is coming from somewhere hidden by a rubber hose on the starboard and the iBR pump on the port side. The water is not coming from the hose flush port (as that is tight and sealed, as best I can tell).
    To be clear, (with the ski on the lift) when the water is below this line, the bilge is dry...when the water reaches this line (very precisely and repeatedly) water seeps in.
    This ski only has 32 hours on it. This leak does not seem to be associated with the carbon ring. I suspected that it is coming in/around the drain holes BUT they both seem to be tight with good O-rings and they are well below the no-go/go line (water not intruding/water intruding).
    Any ideas where to start my search? Thanks!

    If you can, put the ski on a trailer, tip it up and start filling the bilge with water. You should start to see water coming from the breach.

      I believe I have isolated the salt water intrusion from the hull penetrations where the "radiator" hoses go thru to the riding plate. I am hoping this is a known issue with a known solution?

        Are you losing coolant? It looks like you'll need to remove the ride plate and see what's going on there.
