  1. FYI - potential issues with catalytic converters

    Some of you might recall a post from me a couple weeks ago regarding issues with water in the cylinders and oil pan. I gave up and took it into the local dealer, turns out there was an issue with...

    Thanks to everyone for ideas, at this point we're just going to take it to the shop and pray that they don't screw us over too bad. I agree that this doesn't look like blown head gaskets or cracked...

    I'm guessing you've been there then? I wasn't in the boat, and my son didn't think to look at the temp gauge, so we're not sure if the boat was overheating. The local repair shop thinks the motor...

    You're right on the oil pressure, I think that may have been a typo, although I don't remember what the guage WAS reading. I'm really stumped on this, it just seems so wierd to have problems in the...

    I don't think the spilled water got much above the oil pan, given that the floor of the boat is even with the lower portion of the block. So I would think any excess water would just go up forward...

    What seems to strange, at least to me, is that I have water in the oil pan and the rear (away from the transom) two cylinders on EACH side of the motor, but the front two cylinders look great (the...

    Yes, there is also water in the oil pan. So water is getting into the motor, just not sure how or where from. Worried about the big things like cracked blocks, cylinder heads, or blown gaskets, but...

    Well, that wasn't it, both are still there. Besides, if any water did get through, it has a pretty long climb to get up into the motor. The water that did get into the engine compartment could not...

    Blown Head Gaskets? Somthing else?

    We have a 2011 Moomba Mobius XLV with ~120 hours on it. The boat has been running perfect until yesterday. I don't know if this is coincidence or not, but when my son was emptying one of the...

    Oh yeah, relative to our Outback, this boat is like a cruise ship! We've had ten people in this boat, and it didn't feel remotely crowded! Even changing boards, the folks behind the boat, even...

    Thanks everyone for taking the time to respond, I really appreciate you taking the time to provide your thoughts. I was skiing at 30 mph (w/ what I'm guessing at about 60' - 65' rope) with our...

    Hey Joe - Love your suggestion, I'll see if the wife is ok if I go buy another boat. If I can avoid the daggers and knives, I'll let you know how that conversation goes.

    Seriously, thanks for the...

    Waterskiing behind Mobius XLV?

    We recently moved up from an Outback to a 2011 Mobius XLV, and we love the extra room, bigger wake for wakeboarding, how it handles in the rough, general upgrades over the old boat, etc. I knew...
