    Re: 99 GSX Limited sits low in water

Moreso than any other ski I have ridden. Can anyone comment on this? is this normal for this model? Seems like it was maybe just made for 1 person? Thanks
    Is there water in the hull?

    Before I ride I like to stop by the party balloon store and have the hull filled with Helium - Makes the ride ultra smooth, glides over waves and wakes - Only drawback is I cannot open the storage hatches or remove the seat all day.

    This may be way off base but I got a hull ( 96 XP ) for a project and when taking from the truck to the shop cart it seemed to be heavier than normal, empty hull, after looking around at it I found a chip in the hull down to the fibreglass mat, I drilled 2 small holes at the back of the boat and this thing dripped water for 2 days, the foam between glass layers was full of water, I would look over your hull real close or possibly weigh the boat and compare to new weight,

    Just saw this and funny you should say that but I noticed it was extremely heavy when we slid it off the trailer. Will check
