    Is this bad???

    So I got the ski out of winterization today, put a new RIVA battery in her and went to start it on the hose.... Started up after 2 cranks and when it did I got a chit load of smoke from the rear.... immediately shut it down and noticed two things. Smoke was coming from the hole to the right of the pump.....white in color and in excessive amounts. It went on for like 3 minutes and slowly died off. Also noticed that there was a fluid mixed with water that came out... looks like oil mixed with some green stuff mixed with water.... pics included. What is wrong with my ski???

    It looks like the storage oil is burning off the cylinders and that the anitfreeze is coming out from the intercooler. Run it again on the hose for 2 or 3 minutes and it should be gone... Ron

    Sounds like it was just smoke from the exhaust and the fluid is just water(im assuming you had it hooked up to a water hose?), oil and maynpbe antifreeze(depending on how you winterized it. Seems perfectly normal to me.
