The only time i like riding one is in the Bahamas when exploring. Nice water, nice scenery... but as a captain my blood pressure seems to to rise whenever a guest takes it out I hate jetskis Well yesterday aftwrnoon , the **** thing ( a 2 year old Seadoo spark) came back half sunk towed behind the tender. Pulled it on the hydraulic platform to drain it and then clipped it to the davit to bring it back on the top deck. I thought the thing was toast... engine was fully submerged. Couldn’t get the story straight as to what had happened... two guests turtled it, no idea if it had water in first or if they took too long to get it righted up So this morning I get to work. Getting to anything on a spark means the whole top part has to be unscrewed, steering disconnected etc. pull the coils and plugs and sure enough when cranked water and crap shoots out. Lube the cylinders, eject the stuff, plugs back in, crank and the **** thing hydrolocks again. I hate jetskis. Turns out the airbox and the intake manifold were full of water... another hour pulling it all, draining and resinstalling I hate jetskis After 6 or 7 hours, I had the thing all back together and running on the hose. Launch it, let it idle alongside still hooked up to the davit and took it for a test drive. (It s a **** Jetski, can’t use the words sea trial) I hate jetskis 30 minutes a various speed, crunching my spine, getting sprayed. I hate jet skis Hopefully that’s all it will take (plus all the rinsing and spraying). In the plus side all the connectors on the little Rotax engines have good seals and should be ok For those of you who have to deal with Sparks, they are not sealed like other jetskis and of flipped over they will fill with water. It s critical to right then up immediately which is now going to be part of the safety breefing Did I say that I hate jetskis?
