Jetski won't start
My jetski won't start. Can I jump it off another jetski? Will it then keep running? Or does it run off a spark from the battery or use a magneto flywheel?

tell us the symptoms .. what does it do when you hit the start button?
Does it make any noise? Does the engine turn over?
If nothing happens take the battery out and put it on like a trickle charge over night, if you do not have a trickle charge.. take it to like your advance auto parts or somewhere and have them charge it.. they charge them for free..
after you let the battery charge try it again and let us know.

It turns over, but very slowly. Last night it was charged, but once we got to the lake, it slowly turned over again. It started about an hour ago at the house, but now at the lake, it is doing the same thing again.

is the battery new?
is the battery old?
how`s the connector at the rectifier?
how are the battery grounds?
are they clean and tight, including the engine block ground?
are the battery positive cables to the starter solenoid tight?
