I finally got around to replacing the scupper valve on my '96. I've just lived with water coming in while sitting in the water. Any of you '96, and I suppose '95 and maybe '97, with the cheap rubber flapper scupper valve may want to consider doing this. I went to the dealer and bought SeaDoo part number 204060188. It's the scupper valve listed for the '98 Speedster. I just unscrewed the four screws holding the crappy flapper and the '98 part screwed right on using the same holes. I haven't gotten the boat into the water yet to test how it seals but I don't think it could be any worse than the rubber flapper. In case you haven't looked at the updated valve it's a little fitting with a floating ball in it that seals when the boat is sitting still and moves away when under power to let the deck drain. I know SeaDoo recalled the one on my '96 but the dealer wanted me to bring the boat in and have them do the work and it wasn't worth it for me to drag the boat all the way there, leave it for a day, and drag it back to the lake. I think the part was something like $20.00 or so.

Okay, I had the boat in the water for a few days and got no water on the floor. I'd say the new updated scupper works wonders. Anybody that has the old fashioned rubber flapper valve should consider doooing this upgrade.
