Broke d!ck RXT
I went from 60 or so mph....7000rpm....to nothing...no codes....no warning....nothing....to nothing.
Good tone on the dess......hit the start button and....click.
I'd pulled the pump to tweek the prop and I'd finally gotten around to truing the grate. I hoped...maybe I ingested something and locked up the prop....nope....Maybe I fckd up greasing the pump....nope....everything was fine.
I've tried to start it without the pump on.....nothing.
For some reason...I'm thinking.........timing chain.
Somebody tell me there is some small....inexpensive thing....that could be doing this.

No...I hadn't done that. Didn't figure I was turning enough hp to warrant it.

Speed was good for that RPM as well!
Any spark at the plugs?

Then take the PTO/driveshaft side Camshaft cap 2 bolts out, and have a look to see if the cam is turning.
You can see the end to verify it.
If my 2 posts say no spark, not turning cam, then your chain is gooone.
Time to split the engine to replace it am afraid.

sounds like the starter selinoid to me. using pliers jump across both conections and see if the ski tunrs over. be sure the hull is vented of fumes as it will spark

Forgot this one... ooops.
Battery gone flat after not charging on the water is a good one.

Battery has less than 10 hrs on it...same for the relay.
When you say sc "locked up"....you mean....not moving...even a little bit...right? Like checking to see if the washers are gone you should get a slight movement but not be able to spin it.
