    Get that oil out as soon as you can.... urgently!!

    Did you have the bungs in?

    Water got into the hull by the sound of it.

    Check your coolant level, is it low? You may have blown a head gasket...... if its fine then you ingested water somehow, did you check the oil when you purchased the ski?

    Coolant is perfect. I was told that it could possibly be a line hooked up wrong?

    More than likely you have a leaking intercooler.

    somehow I 'm afraid this one is going to get the uglies pretty quick. Before you turn your 5k motor into a lump, get all that oil out ( buy a suction pump tomorrow..and load of cheap oil, you'll be flushing for a while..maybe 6-8 changes to clear it.

    try to find a friendly, yet competent ski shop too..this kind of problem can quickly escalate into an unhappy day for a beginner.

    Yep, totally agree.... gotta get the trashed oil oit of the ski super-urgently.

    Oil out via dip-stick tube, filter out, and then take the rocker top off, push the suction tube down into the bottom of the cam chain tunnel, right to the bottom, and then draw all the oil from there too. This gets the contaminated oil out from the tank in the engine for you. Take time here, and have the nose of the ski in the air to get it all to drain to the back of the engine.

    Once all out, then get new oil and filter in, and turn it over for a while.

    If you see coolant in the drawn out oil by its colour, then we have a start for the cause.

    But first things first to save the engine.

    sounds like you could have a blown headgasket. It could be barely slipping by your headgasket and thats why your coolant level isnt really changing.
