This weekend took out a recently purchased used ski for the first time. I noticed that the was taking on water so pulled it out in panic and flushed and checked everything was hoping for a hoses etc but, didn't find anything. Put back in the water the next day without running and started to take on water again. Pulled it and drained out. Filled the hull about 3inch of water with a hose and started to see drips from grate. Looking online this means possible carbon ring? I am remotely located 6hrs from a dealer so not easy to take it to have it evaluated. Any tips would be great. Also only ocean near by so not that easy to just put it in the water and confirm the leak location.
