Does anyone have an idea what this could be? I would like to fix it if I can before the end of the season.

Could be that the driveshaft seal is just loud out of the water, or could be the jetpump bearings on that side. If you can remove that pump, check that there is no slop or side to movement of the impeller, and that it spins freely and quietly.

I took a bunch of kids out tubing about 2 weeks ago, everything was going well until they weren't paying attention to the tow rope and yep sucked it right up to the tube. Had to deflate the tube and slowly hobble back to the ramp. I think it took about 45 min. to get back. What a job to unwrap the rope from the driveshaft, even with the pump removed. Live and learn.

Anyhow, also be sure you put the little rubber bumpers back in the end of the driveshaft when you took that pump off..... Good luck and if ya need us we are here!

triggerman, I will pull the pump myself and see if it something I can fix myself. I hate to pay for someone else to fix something that I can do. I am wondering if when I took the boat out for it's maiden voyage and sucked the rocks up into the jet pumps, if that is when the noise started. I don't remember having the noise when I bought the boat. I guess a bearing could have gotten damaged when the rock jammed it.
Glad you found it John, now it is all up to the repairing it. I wouldn't take it out again until it is fixed... but that's just me! You going to doo the work yourself or take it somewhere?
