Any ideas?

    It is possible that you have an airleak on your engine like a bad crankseal causing the high rev. you should never try to rev your ski up very high on the hose because the engine has no resistance and can run away like yours did. Try putting it in the water tied to the trailer and see how it runs. Running on the hose is almost useless for any testing other than to simply see if it will run. 40:1 premix ratio should be good.

    Don't spray ether (starting fluid) in it... use a spray bottle with mixed gas instead. Using ether removes the oil film on the cylinder walls and will cause damage. My seadoo likes to stay revved as well when I have it hooked to the hose, but in the water it runs fine. There isn't any resistance on the impeller (no load) when out of water. Put it in the water and test it.
