    Did it have a SS wear ring

    Looks like with all of that corrosion in the housing between the liner and the cheap made Taiwan metal could have caused it to crack like that.

    I asked because Kawi uses a SS liner and on salt water older ski it is very common for them to swell up due to salt in between the liner and housing causing them to prevent the prop from turning, in your case I guess the pressure just cracked the housing

    Solas is refusing to replace saying it was because ski was left in water to long and I didnt wash it

    Ski is trailered after every ride and thoroughly cleaned after every ride

    What are they basing that conclusion on?

    On a related note. Has anyone ever considered adding a zinc anode to the solas pump housing to help control some of the corrosion?

    Thats what I replied to them with saying it was because there was no anode is why. Its just a shit product.
    I have since asked them saying it would only be right to sell just the housing without the ss wear ring and the vanes as these are still good just need to clean them up
