Since I bought this boat in 2005, I noticed I was getting water in the bilge occasionally and the bilge pump would come on. I complained about it and the Techs could never duplicate the problem. Three trips to the dealer on this at $150 a pop. They finally found a void in the seam where the upper shell is bonded to the hull back by the swim ladder underneath the rub rail. The dealer said it is clearly a factory flaw. After a lot of arguing with BRP, Seadoo said they would pay the $1600 to have it fixed.
NOW as it turns out , Seadoo knew about this problem, since they have had several 2005 Sportsters with the very same issue. But they initially told me it was casued by abuse which was total BS. I'm 55 years old, have been a boater for 35 years and take miticlous care of all my boats. As soon as they get done fixing this leak, its up for sale. If any one wants a Sportster SCIC 215 with a brand new engine with two hours on it, $9500.
I've had it.
