    Which reasons you have stopped (break down) on the sea, especially virage

    I think it will help, most pwc lovers to check before riding.
    Please do not count on empty fuel also, oil

    This is funny, but I have forget the take of the fresh water adaptor to pull and close the hatch and all hull get water nearly sinking
    And a dead rope caught on my intake!

    My most interest on mechanical and electrical issues.

    I broke down mid ride once. Was doing some playing around behind a yacht stopped to splash some water on my face and she stalled and wouldn't restart.

    Turned out to be the Ficht EMM.

    Virage TXi - Bonded rubber driveshaft coupler began slipping under power.

    Lots of smoke and smell under the seat, would not deliver much power to the impeller. Got towed back to the dock after clamping off water feed hose to protect the now shut-down engine from water damage during the rather long distance tow.

    Replaced the failed coupler, everything back to normal.

    I spun a prop loose once. I wonder if I sucked up something that made it come loose. Destroyed a prop, wear ring and the seal collar.
