    Thanks, I'm interested in it but they don't do test drives and I'm a big bloke so I'm worried my weight might kill it.
  2. Help finding a new lightweight high performance ski

    I'd like a light nimble sit down ski that is fast up to 50mph, hopefully with a large diameter jet.

    Not fixing the problem, but would using iridium plugs be better. There is a LFR6AIX-11 plug, is that suitable ?

    I was surprised by that too. Maybe the self bailer works really well or maybe the hose wasn't all the way off until I started pulling on hoses.

    I will do some searching on fitting automatic bilge...

    Just had a look at mine, the number on the back ends in 414.....April 2014 ? I guess, can't find any other plate that has a date on it.

    If so it sounds like this issue was fixed by then ?

    I rode the one after mine with the reverse switch and trim tab and it wasn't anywhere near as good, it seemed more cruiser than sport. Not sure if the new ones are more sport, doesn't sound like it.
