    Water in hull 300x update

    So I still have some water in my hull. I found a leak at wot where the manifold goes to the exhaust, that is now fixed but still got water in hull after every ride.

    I only get water when riding the ski.
    Its always about the same amount when i open the drainplugs after a days ride.
    Lines to the IC looks good and tested the IC out of the ski with waterpressure, seems to be no probs.

    Getting grey hair from this.... Cant see any leaks when riding witout the sadle.
    How is the waterroute into the engine??
    Any more tips about searching for the leak?

    thx!

    How much water are you talking about,is it still hot water?

    siphoning bilge will only take out water till a 1/2 inch deep but if it's hot water then it's something to be concerned with..

    put a camera in the hull, check for splits on every hose at the oil cooler, oil cooler to head and s/c they are the ones that normally split.

    Little warm yes but hot doubt it as you move forward most of the water heads back ..

    For safety add a auto bilge pump and hose $35 (US) with fuse and battery running a good 12.5V sitting and 13V+ running ..

    Thx for answers! Checked all of the oilcooling hooses, couldnt see any cracks... Have a auto bilgepump installed! Could the supercharger be leaking on the lower side?

    Have you check the hoses for the siphoning bilge system? Once I forgot to put the outlet hose back on the pump that was not so good
