    1988 js 550

    ok just bought the ski. it will run great on the trailer but it will die in the water and will not restart in the water. any one got any ideas

    Is the engne turning over when in the water? If it is turning over on the trailer, and not when in the water,it is most likely your battery.

    If it s cranking in both places, and only starting on dry ground, I would pull the plugs and make sure the cylinders aren't getting water intrusion.
