Last season I sucked up something, shut the ski down and haven't restarted since as it was getting cold last year. Looking to repair the ski, but want to make sure I don't overpay for something I won't need. From the looks of these pics, what would I need? just a impeller and a wear ring?

Figured so, possible for anymore damage? I have to rely on whatever a dealer tells me. New place, no tools or time to mess with it myself.. Good place to purchase new stock parts? My local dealer only wants like $550 for new wear ring, impeller, and the labor. But they haven't inspected it yet, just a quote they sent based off what I assume is wrong....

don't waste your time and money putting back stock parts.
Go stainless wear ring and new stainless prop not that much more


PS keep out of the rocks with prop that looks like that

I was in about 7 feet of water when it happened and like 1/4 throttle.


I've been told not to go with the stainless stuff as the next link to fail would be catastrophic.

Well i used ours for the first time today! It was a blast out on the river in NJ, nearly flat as glass except for a few boats going past and a little wave hopping.

After about 3 hours, i believe something was sucked into the impeller as it started to feel like it was stalling "or sucking air", 3/4 throttle about 40mph going straight, no waves around, in the channel or about 50-60ft of water. I slowed down, tried to take off again and it vibrates now anything over maybe half throttle. Since i was about a mile from the dock, i pulled off to the muddy shore until i could jump off, reached underneath into the intake grate and couldn't feel anything.

I limped it back to the dock at about 25-30mph half throttle, and seemed normal until you get on it any more rpms... took it out on the trailer, and can't see anything in back of the impeller either.

Do i need to remove the bolts to remove the grate? they look like 1/2" or 12-13mm bolts, 4 of them?

I'm assuming a plastic bag maybe wrapped around the impeller shaft or fishing line? There were a few sticks in the water at that time, nothing that i heard bump though.

Ive tried reversing, turning it off, lifting up the back of the unit multiple times to try to surge some water manually in and out of the back of the unit, pulling it backwards near the dock while it was not running.. nothing seems to release whatever is in there. help :/
