    pfft 2 stroke is easy... pull the plugs... turn the motor over till the water is out put in some dry plugs and crank it up.

    wash down the engine compartment too and spray it all down with a wd40 type of lube to prevent corrosion.

    No problem 2 strokes are easy to work on and even easier to get running after getting flooded with water. Just make sure he gets it running and then run the snot out of it so that all the water in the crankcase evaporates.

    If the ski sank by the Clear Lake channel, near Corpus Christi, it may already have enough oil in it from the drilling rigs. I couldn't even walk in the water without getting oil all over my feet... Ron
