    Water in engine?

    I found a 2004 RXP that was rolled over in the water last year. The engine 40 hours on it when water got in it. The owner said it would not start so it has sat for a year since the water was in the engine. The seadoo is in good overall condition other then the engine. I now that it will need a new engine but was wondering what other parts might need to be replaced or fixed? Also what price do you think it would be worth? He is asking $2000 obo

    Was it fresh or salt water. Fresh water doesnt corrode as bad as the salt water. I bought a Katrina victim a few years ago and the salt water had corroded everything. The pins in the mpem-the pins in the wiring harness ect. If they just let it set up after being flooded-worst thng they could have done. Youve got to get everything dried out asap.

    Fresh water. I would think everything is dry by now, it has been sitting for over a year.
