    talk about a day from hell

    What a day

    My wife and I have a couple of seadoo skis (2000gs & 2007gtsi) and it's a beautiful day; let's go for a spin before dinner. NOT today though !

    Dropped the skis off the trailer. My boys on the ski while I park the trailer. I come back to the lake. My boys in the water, my wife says " your ski is sinking. I was lucky enough to get the ski back to the loading ramp.

    Bottom line is this. Hull filled with water. The pvc elbow broke in the rear of the ski and flooded the hull.

    I cleared the cylinders, poured 1 oz of two stroke oil in each cylinder and she fired up. Is there anything I need to do. ( besides fix that damn pvc pipe)

    Please help.

    The manual says to run the engine and spray lube into the carbs while the engine is running. Also spray lube/WD40 all over the engine bay area to displace as much water as possible and stop as much corroding as possible.

    I guarentee you will need a starter in the near future as well.

    PS

    Definately fog the engine very well with some lube as well. I bought the bombardier fogging oil for $6 and it works well. Pull the plugs out, spray it generously all inside the cylinders and turn the crank by hand to spread it all over the walls and rings.

    Run the engine not on the hose until the sides of the cylinders get too hot to hold with the palm of your hands. Shut off, and immediately pull out the spark plugs.

    This allows the steam/moisture to escape. Doo this 3-4 times, then fog thoroughly.

    If you didn't rev the engine 3-4 times to blow water out of the pipe, do this while running too.

    Thanks for the advice guys.
    Talk about a scary day. The damn ski almost turned into an anchor. Is the problem I had a common one? Does Seadoo offer a thick wall pvc elbow replacement?

    It wouldn't have sunk, just submerged your engine. There is too much flotation inside. Just a FYI.

    I've never heard of the elbow cracking like you describe.
