I've got this 2 foot long tube about 4" in diameter attached to the center of my seat. I'm guessing it is there to route outside air into the engine compartment.

It makes it very difficult to store the seat while I'm working on the craft (which is constantly...). Are there any drawbacks to taking the tube off? Has anyone taken a similar tube off of their seat, and can confirm they had no problems?

i would not cut it off
it is for air to come in and fumes to get out so u do not blow up

there is somebody around that put more air intakes on the pwc, but i forgot who

The tube stops water from getting in when you roll the ski. It lets air flow when the ski is upright, along with the intakes up front. DO NOT REMOVE IT unless you get the seepoo vents and install them. Sealion posted them somewhere.

Oh, now I get it. If the ski sits upside down, water would sink it if the tube wasn't there... Ok, I guess it stays.
