    I would say that was the case or a fuel leak. If you look close the ski was a 2-Stroke and probably not well maintained since it looked like it was left out on a lift at a dock. Probably just a gas and go, but due to a fuel leak and vapors, the disaster happened and of course there had to be the ultimate spark from something.

    Maybe sea-doom should rethink the name "Spark" for the newest skis.

    Too soon?

    Another reason I always pull seats and storage for inspection before every outing. It only takes a couple minutes to do it.

    I was at long Lake in Naples Maine two years ago, we heard a huge explosion off in the distance, same thing happened, Seadoo started after refueling and owner got launched into the air and landed on his head on the dock.
    He survived, the ski was split in two at the rub rail.
