99 sltx no compression front cylinder
Took the ski out at the beach yesterday noticed it was slow to plane....after she got going ran pretty good. Started checking things this morning and found no cores soon on front cylinder. Is there anything I can do short of rebuilding? We are on vacation and the kids are anxious!

The only way to fix the engine is to, well, fix the engine.
No compression typically means a hole has burned through the piston, and THAT is typically caused by a dirty or gummed up carburetor and/or a fuel system that needs maintenance.
If the failure is something else, like a broken piston, then the repair could well require a complete engine tear down.
Replacing a piston involves tools and parts. If you remove the water bar and cylinder head at least you can see what damage is apparent.
