    Thumbs down ski full of water 06 gpr1300

    gents

    i had a problem yesterday , my ski filled with water , i tried a few times to start before looking under the seat, Hull was 1/3 full.

    after i turned my towing tap , i pulled the ski back to the ramp , tipped her nose up and let drain , removed spark plugs and pumped the water out of the cylinders with the starter , once reasonable dry inserted used spark plugs and managed to get her started.

    replaced used spark plugs with new , and ran her all day ( 4 hours ) mostly full throttle with no real drop in performance etc .

    back home after rinsing , removed spark plugs and poured oil down the cylinders


    anything else i need to do ??

    i shall be running her again in 3 days time , and regulary run twice a week

    Sounds about right.

    I tend to not even pull the drain plugs out anymore. Too much of a chance of leaving them out.

    thanks for the advice

    i am so stuck in my launch ramp routine that drain plugs have never been an issue , this incident came about when i hitched my ski to a friends to hold off from another launch ramp while i went off for a chat , they were boats launching and he pulled mine around ( and around - and around )to keep clear of the launch.

    worse part is i have a tow tap installed

    you should be ok,i did the same thing but went 3/4 full before i realised my ski was sinking long story...
    the only thing i did diffrent was to get loads of 2 smoke oil down bores after the run but that was for my peice of mind and i was told the ski was ok after 30 mins of WOT runs..

    thanks to all for putting my mind at ease , i poured some of my bike synthetic oil down the bores ( no 2 stroke left ) and turned her over for a while tonight with no spark plugs in

    new box of spark plugs in hand for thursday on the water.

    Hydrotherapy : where in the UK are you , cant imagine running a ski there, i am originaly from Fundee in Scotland , lived in the midlands for a few years , i would need a duffle coat under a dry suit if i was back home
