FWIW, the diagram is from the owners manual of my SN.

I saw you out a few times! That was taken over Memorial... I think it was Sunday night that we went to Roadrunner.

Tim washed up my boat the week before Memorial. He seems like a good guy. His shop is coming along nicely, as well!

Why is the boat registered in MN?

I have all of my registration in MN - tons cheaper. I work for the government and move around quite a bit. In San Diego now. I actually worked for TIm all last summer as his detail guy. THe boat is stored at his air conditioned shop now, always clean and ready to go for the weekend.

Sounds like a good deal!

Good luck on getting the boat back on the water. If you see me out, cruise over and say Hi.

FYI.....Jeff Walker-SurfDad on Wakeworld had a similar problem with his Tige. A plastic bag stopped the flow of water into the intake. His insurance company covered the new engine. Might be worth a phone call!

I'm glad I have the brass intake cover on mine and it's hard to swallow when watching MC Rewind 2010 saying they 'do not compromise'. Cheap composite plastic seems like a compromise to me....

I was shocked to see the plastic fittings on my 09 when my 08 had the brass fittings. Definitely cheapo. I thought about swapping them for brass. I gotta go check mine now to see if it is completely intact.

Sand2snow22 - I made a call to the insurance company and it just might be covered! FYI bill was about 7,500.
