    Question Sank the SL750

    Well almost sank her LOL launched it and the 900 yesterday ran them down to the house all was good. The wife was ready to take her first ride on it today so i got her aquainted with the controls and away she went. As she was on her way back i noticed the boat porpusing I know that isn't spelled right and was a tad low in the water so theni starts cutting out and quit. So we pull it back to the dock tie it up and pop off the seat dummy me when i was rebuilding it had removed the plug in the manifold to blow the water out of and didn't tighten it back up anyhow we had water even with the cylinder heads. So we drug that pup ashore with the old tractor and drained her out. Anywho the question is just how watertight are the electrical boxes on these puppies, think i may have gotten some water in it? It's wasn't firing but there was so much water in it it may have misted the carbs and wet the plugs didn't have much time to troubleshoot before i had to head to work.

    The box really isn't normally water tight but water resistant,Get it open and get her dryed out,I'd fog the engine till you get it started.Pull the plugs and crank it and blow any water out. But get it running ASAP.

    Hey fella's she didn't hydro lock i just suspect it probably got a small snort of water, i mostly suspected the electrical box just wanted to get some more experienced opinons on the hhmm water tightness of the box. Still cranks over just fine but no spark. I would suspect the box before i would the stator/flywheel housing. Thank's for the input.

    Cool

    Hey thanks for the info about the stator housing anyone know where to get a large can of contact cleaner all i ever seem to run across is the small can's. In the past on the dirt bike's and 4 wheeler's when i would get water in there i usually used brake cleaner never seemed to cause any problems but then again having one quit on the trail isn't near the pain in the ass as it would be 3 mile's down river LOL. Somone tell me i'm probable not gonna have to pull the fuel cell to pull the stator housing i just tooped her off with fuel, i replaced all the fuel lines filter' etc. when i got here in the fall but don't remember how much room there is down in the hull.
