    submerge gpr

    yesterday went out to with the family, and a family friend asked to ride the ski...then he somehow submerge the ski... now im no mechanic but i brought it to a local guy here that fix jetskis and i dont know what he did, but he charge me 300 calling it a "wet jet" brought it out today start right up then when i hit the throttle it got up to 50 then everything shut down. it died. I called the mechanic and he told me there might be some water in the carb or the tank. But isnt that what i paid him for? to get it up n running? So what can i do at this point. thanks for all info

    Water is a big issue if it got into the motor. What's your definition of submerged?

    wow $300?!?!?!..krikey, that's DOUBLE what I charge to recover a sunken ski ( two stroke...4 stroke $250 to cover all the oil changes typically needed)..and that includes an hour running in the test tank to boil the water out of the motor after it's running!

    Water in the carb?..that's a bunch of crap..now water int eh electric box..certainly possible if the cover wasn't installed correctly at one time..or perhaps the fuse cover is missing...

    btw..ask the family member to kick in half the money.....and tell this "mechanic" he should give the services paid for.

    now the important question....

    how long between submersion and service?

    I always let my friends ride but I give them a 20 minute speech before they go out. Hopefully I never have a problem like this.

    Unless he has some warranty on services, have your rider pay the fee as he caused the issue. Seems he is ultimately to blame.

    $300 was really steep! Ask him for a written detail of what he actually did to earn your money...
