    Sunk Genisis

    Just bought 2000 Polaris Genisus,prev owner had flushed engine and forgot to clamp intake hose.Long story short it sunk and we towed 2miles upside down back to Marina!Now what do look for in getting repaired or do I assume it is damaged engine now? as well as all digital gauges?

    Did you get it dried out and running? If not get that engine dried out and get it fired up!!!!!!

    Id pull the plugs and crank it over to get any possible water out, next do a compression check if everything checks out then try to fire it up

    How long ago did this happen? If more than a day or two it is probably junk

    I would not junk it just yet. If you get the water out and run the hell out of it I could be fine. Getting the water out before you get some serious rust damage inside the engine is the key. Clock is ticking, get that water out of there and get it running. Once you get it going fog the crap out of the engine to coat the internals.

    Should have checked everything before taking the ski out if you have no history of it. 2 mile out is pretty far to be on a new used ski for the first time.

    That's probably a very rusty motor on the inside by now.
