    The only thing I could think of is to check the carbs for yourself to make sure they are clean. Otherwise I would think you are good to go. Look over the jet pump and make sure the bearings are good and everything is in good operating condition.

    Check the intake grate bolts and rideplate and sponsons for being loose.any of those could cause an accident if not tight. check the blades on the impellor for dings and the pump vanes for damage. also check any cotter pins and nuts and bolts back there to make sure all is tight and moving freely. Welcome to the hulk. sounds like you have a winner of a ski there with all the updates on it. Take pics of what ya got. we love pictures.. does the gauge work? (MFD)= Multi-function gauge. See if your intake screen is in place inside the exit nozzle. Also your speedo hose should be connected. its under the thru hull bearing connected to a white pitot tube. watch for any water in the ski when you first launch. your seals in the thru hull bearing may leak..just depends if they are good or not. otherwise, splash her and ride! Good Battery? an AGM battery is what ya want to get for it. no gas fumes!

    Grease the coupler and thru hull carrier. theres a fitting on both to grease them. Don't overfill them.esspecially on the thru hull. just fill it, not explode grease out the ends. that could damage the seals. if it has a needle bearing fitting, it can be changed to a zerk fitting.

    We are an understanding bunch here. I am sure he is welcome to come and participate and nobody will hold a grudge. On some of the other forums that is not the case. We all understand shit happens. So tell him to come back.
