    Starving for air?

    I noticed when I rev my ski on the trailer to blow out the waterbox my seat is getting sucked in , so I'm under the impression it that air is not getting into the hull as fast as the engine consumes it , I was thinking of installing flo-rite vents but I'm if I flip it ( which I haven't done yet) water will fill the hull faster , what is the best way to get more air ? Are flo-rite vents the best solution?

    Best solution imo is to run a rear air w/ a vented seat frame.

    And dont roll the ski.

    If I did the 4" filter and moved it close to the inlet at the front of the ski would that be a better option?

    Okay....because this is as good a spot as any....

    This info was posted by a once respected member of this board. None questioned the accuracy of it at the time...doubt any will now either. Always wanted to test my "contraption" against Rivas and a 4"kana front...never sent it off.

    I'll still bet my weekly paycheck that it'd beat both.
