    Angry rxt 260 is fell off trailer

    Well my brother took out the jet ski today, and he drives like an idiot when he tows the boat and jet ski around such as accelerating too fast and taking corners too fast. It finally happened today. IT FELL OFF. The bottom is ripped up, the ride plate is leaking antifreeze the IBR deflector is bent and scraped, and not to mention the suspension doesn't work anymore. He keeps saying its not his fault, the winch broke. The winch broke because of his driving, it is his fault. I have insurance but im pretty sure it only covers riding the jet ski. Im nervous how much these repairs are going to cost. Do you guys have any recommendations. I also have the seadoo warranty but i think it only covers electronic parts that go bad not by accidents.

    Wow, what a first post... sorry for your troubles and I hope 2012 starts better than 2011 ended for you. I'm pretty sure your warranty for the ski is useless. Of course, if you have an "I" trailer, under warranty, you may have something there... Other than that, you may have a claim via the automobile insurance involved provided you/he have/has the correct coverage. Usually, PWC/Boat insurance covers the vessel while on the water. If an accident happens on the road - then that may be a matter for your automobile insurance. Other than that, I really don't have any recommendations... but good luck all the same.

    PS: Welcome to the forum.

    Damn. Sounds like the ski is toast. Gotta agree with Billy. Warranty probably will not cover it. For what it may take to repair it, it may not be what its worth.

    Hate to say, but sounds like you need a new ski and a new brother.

    Sounds like you may have several options:

    1. Get a quote for the body work assuming the internals are sound.
    2. Part out what you can and start over.
    3. Start shopping for a new hull.

    Dang, I just dunno... but I know who won't be riding the next ski. Really, though - good luck man.

    Talk to his vehicle insurance. If he has full coverage it will cover anything being towed or carried.
