    What does cavitation sound like?

    What does cavitation sound like? I haven't been able to find a video or description of the sound a ski makes during cavitation.

    Its more of a feeling of going nowhere with RPMs increasing versus a sound.

    It sounds like it's suffering... It can make you very emotional, and even drive some to tears.

    I was having some nose cone issues ,but It's all better now. I was getting a strange grating sound I thought might have been cavitation. It appears to have been caused by an un-threaded nose cone. Acted kinda like something stuck in the intake grate.

    Did you use the OEM screws for your impeller cover screws? I'm curious, because Sea-Doo insists they need to be replaced with the yellow Loctite (factory) coated screws.

    I reused the same cover bolts with blue loctite. It was my impeller boot that backed out.
