    Another Carbon Ring Question

    So sadly had to winterize my ski today.....Noticed a decent black line from the carbon ring. I have never had any water in the hull, and have not had to wash the hull out. The ski has a little over 30hrs on it and is a 2018 gtx 300. Is this something I should have the dealer check?
    Here are two photos.....

    The carbon seal is a wear item. Even a perfectly aligned engine it can show that black line. For peace of mind, have the alignment checked.

    Any idea what a shop would charge to check the alignment, or what's involved in checking it? Or would the dealer cover this under warranty, since its less then a year old and 30hrs?

    all normal and nothing to worry about, especially with only 30 hours.
