    Cool Wave Venture 1100 ?????

    My father bought a 96 Wave Venture 1100 with only 40 hrs. on it. It has been sitting the past 2yrs. We got it to crank and run for a couple of sec. then we deside to start it with water running through it and the 3 cyl. filled up and hydro locked it. My question is: How is the water getting in to the cyl.? Should i rebuild it?

    I would think the head gasket is blown...or the cylinder is cracked and water is getting in

    +1 you can not turn the water on without the ski running or you will flood the engine with water
