    swallowed a rock, motor wont run

    So I got to close to the shore and it sounded like my ski swallowed a rock. It made a nasty sound like there was a rock in the motor. Then it died and now the motor wont start. Any ideas on what happened and how I can fix it? Thanks

    Probably have a rock wedged in the pump......look up the intake grate towards the back of the ski, also look in from the steering nozzle, most likey will have to pull the pump......

    Or it could be a possible coincidence that a crank bearing went out and a rod let go right as you were near the shore. Does it turn over?

    Doh! They don't process rocks well.
