    Default What do I do now? HELP!!

    Gentleman,

    After a long, fun, safe weekend wakeboarding and tubing with friends my weekend came to a end after my buddy allowed my ski rope to get sucked in to my jet intake

    How he allow it to happen, I dont know but its in there and I dont know where to begin?

    I dove in the water and try to pull it out but no luck, after paddling a few hundred yards we finally got the boat out and its now sitting in my garage.

    Now my question is where do I begin??? any suggestions, and this common?

    Thank yall.

    My beautiful wife which I love so much did the same.

    I was in town collecting some stuff, they took the hand hole cover off while the boat was still in the water. Imagine my surprise coming back and all I could see was the nose of the boat sticking out the water.

    She was banned from driving my boat

    Now she suck up ski ropes with the RXP215 Seadoo I bought her. I don't cut the ropes off any more, did it once - they learn real quick.

    We don't have EPA, I see the Water Police maybe once every 2 years

    At least I have an excuse now when I spent money on the boat, I just remind her of that fateful day she made a submarine out of my boat.

    10" serrated bread knife is great. You can really get up in there even if your hand can't!
