Engine Damage coolant in combustion chamber
Well....I had an excelent Memorial weekend....this is what I have to show for it....anyone want to take a wild guess on what the problem might be .

If anyone know's why this would have happend please let me know....the only thing that I can think of is my ceramic washers might have caused it, because my SC did go out on me several months ago and I think my dealer did a bad job of cleaning all the particles out of the engine.

my guess is that the particals caused your motor to throw a rod

could be you cracked the cylinders, could be a rod or bearing let go, let the piston hammer into the head and blow the head gasket while also wrecking the valves, spark plug, and combustion chamber
could be dropped or snapped some valves which hammered the head and maybe let the head gasket go with it
you have any oil in the hull?
what cylinder? you have the smashed plug in the middle, but coolant in the rear-most cylinder... did you mix the plugs up? which plug goes where
is the starter still attached to the side of the motor, or is it laying inside the hull?
still got warranty? ski stock?

That looks very familiar!! here's mine from my 05 RXT last summer. and it happened memorial day weekend also! I was told the dealer that winterized, then summerized failed to put oil back in!
Had to have a new engine put in!

Oh by the way coolant came in after the damage....my ski was not losing coolant at the time....when I took off the spark plug....like 5 min later I noticed coolant in the combustion chamber.

Your going to have a lot of damage and it was most likely caused by a dropped valve. The coolant may be coming in through a crack in the bore,a side effect of having a valve bouncing around in there.Time for the engine to come out I'm afraid.

Do you have an aftermarket ECU?

I think I got similar problem like what you got …. At high speed the engine turned off by it self and it wouldn’t start back … when the mechanic opened the engine head he told me its from the intercooler leaking water … He told me don’t put high pressure water house when you flush the Engine when you don from your ride … IM not sure if this is the problem.
