    [SOLVED] Submarined ski, now won't rev over 2000rpm

    WHen heading over to pick my friend out of the water from falling on the wakeboard, I did this (only a good bit slower)



    After I came out of the water, the ski is doing that thing where you try to rev up and the whole ski just vibrates violently. This symptom is usually met with "something is stuck in your prop". Could it be that water was sucked into the engine and got a spark plug wet, causing it to only fire 2 cylinders?

    EDIT: solved - there was an entire bottle of sunscreen in the pump

    +1.... and did your ski stall out?? 2000rpm doesn't sound good, even with damaged plugs it should rev higher than that.. Your inlet manifold may also be full of water..

    Why would you do this. Not being rude, but that is dumb as hell...

    :

    You jacked something up. For a laugh huh?

    Doing this is kind of like getting caught going 100mph and getting pissed at the cop for writing you a ticket.

    An idea..... you could get one of these since you like the underwater aspect so much.....

    It's definitely not a submarine bro. Hate to be sarcastic but you have to take care of these things if you expect the to run. They are not made to be flipped and go underwater.

    If you have never had to earn something, you never learn to take care of it.

    I was thinking the same thing. Why In the Hell would you want to do this with your ski.
