Sunk our 2012 X2 - remaining issues - help !!

Our new to us 2012 mastercraft was overcome by waves in a freak storm last week while we were away .
Spent the last week drying it out , flushing engine and transmission etc , removed all water from fuel system , new batteries etc long story short , have it up and running again but once it is warmed up it will only run for a secong and shuts down , runs very well aside from that small issue. The converter/manifold combos seem to get warmer than normal and have a service engine light ( no surprise there ) All other engine gauges read within normal range.
Will the cats handle a sinking or are they junk ??
Any input or ideas would be great

Thanks in advance

Rick

Why wouldn't you have claimed insurance??? Water and electronics don't mix

Agree......call your insurance.

you WILL have moisture issues later, even if the boat is running now.

all electronics would be my worry.

good luck

My 2000 X-Star sunk several years ago. Claimed on insurance, engine was fine, but all electronics were toast.

Hmm, catalytic converters are made from noble metals and simply being flooded will not damage them, now if said vehicle was driven and converters were at operating temperature, well over 1000 degrees and you drove through a flooded street the rapid cooling of the converter could cause the honeycomb to fracture thus damaging the unit, marine catalytic converters operate at a much lower temperature due to the walls of the converter being water cooled with waste water.

Thanks for the replies so far , yes it is covered and it yes it turns out the ecm is toast , still no answer as to the durability of the converter/manifold units. Will get the ecm installed and see what happens and will post the results.
