    Well if harsh cleaners were sprayed on the foam it could have caused the melting.

    The only other thing that would cause it to melt would be heat, maybe your exhaust water line is partially restricted causing excessive heat in the hull, try flushing the system out really well

    gasoline will melt styrene in a heart-beat. Did you use gas to clean anything in that area?

    Your Seadoo needs fresh water to cool the exhaust, the black line that goes to the exhaust manifold of just one of the water lines I was referring to that cools the system, I'm not sure if you do or not but its possible something is restricting the system slightly causing it to run hotter than normal in turn melting the polystyrene in your hull

    Judging by the dark residue on the hull i'd say Your Jpipe is either cracked at the flex area or your V clamp is loose.
