Well, my buddy Jarrett got his ski back from the dealer who forgot to clamp the hose coming in from the pump. Hose came off and the hull filled with water above the engine. We drained it, pulled the plugs and got all the water out of the cylinders, changed the oil a couple times (he is in the process of changing it as many times as it takes to get rid of the milky white stuff.) Is there anything else he needs to do to get the water out of the engine/oil?

Yeah, give the dealer a good old fashioned Texan ass whooping and have him fix it.

Yeah, we checked all the accessible clamps before we went out and one out of two was loose. This was after the dealer gave him back the ski telling him "it keeps getting a hi temp warning. We went over it with a fine toothed comb and can't find the problem. Good luck." Literally, they said "good luck." Well, we didn't check the one hose that turned out to be the problem

jarrett....do a really complete oil change by removing the valve cover off the top of the engine an sticking your siphon hose to the bottom of the cam chain compartment. there is another 1.5 quarts of oil lurking down there over and above what you get from the dipstick tube. you should be able to get about 4.5 quarts of oil this way. refill with fresh oil and run it on the trailer for at least .5 hr. leave the dipstick and oil filler cap off during this. this way the oil will get very hot and boil off the water. you will see lots of water vapor coming out of the engine as the water leaves the oil. when the vapor stops the water is gone. hope this helps.

i do not question ur expertise one bit... i trust ANYTHING u say, haha...
i'm wondering tho, u suggested he run the ski for a half hour on the trailer... can that long cause damage to the acordion boot for the thru-hull fittings or anything for the driveshaft? or is that theory a myth?
should you let a hose run on the boot/driveshaft while it runs on the trailer and leave the drain plugs open to cool it, or not neccessary?

sorry...i meant with the trailer in the water at the launch ramp. the carbon seal gets hot fast when out of the water.
