    Default water in hull after hard pass?

    What gives? Can cruise around all day with no issue but I romp down on it a few seconds and then there's a ton of water in the floor. It's not the headers... I turned the water off to verify. Any clue?

    Go pro in the bilge, but it's probably water intake for cooling or of you have a jet it could be a seal.

    Packing clamp is prob gtn loose, put a turn or two on the nuts and see if it goes away.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Had a similar problem, the transom cover gasket was hanging down below the boat and the two bottom bolts needed a snug-down

    Thanks for the replies. The pump is set back so it ain't the bowl. You'd think a seal would spray or something... I mean it's a bunch a water where I gotta turn the bilge on.

    Is the water warm or cold? Mine does it too, but its not that big of a deal to me

    I have water coming in around the loader bolts and around the bottom of the transom plates. Might check all your cooling water connections, I've had those loosen up and put some water in the hull.

    In my very limited jet experience, the above has caused the described problem for me personally. Cruise... no problem. But, get on it and once the intake builds some pressure it looks like the lawn sprinklers turned on behind the engine. Water everywhere.

    In my case the packing follower broke an ear off when I tightened it up a bit. Got new packing glands when I ordered the replacement follower. Be gentile. If it seems bottomed out, it probably is, and just time for new packing glands.

    Just my limited experience. YMMV

    Perhaps the suction housing has fatigue cracked, or the suction is leaking at the intake.
