I need Jet Ski Repair help

Hey guys. I had a problem with my jet ski last year and I'm looking for some repair advice. Last year I had a problem with my jet ski where it sucked up a rope into the propeller shaft. I was unwrapped all the rope, but int he process I sunbmerged the jetski for about 15 minutes. Now the jet ski won't start. It will crank a little bit, but not turn over. We took it into a boat yard and they got it started, but said the carberator need repairing.

Is this a repair I should do myself? If not where would be a good place to take the jet ski to have it repaired? The boat yard is always very expensive so I would like to do something else.

Oh and it's a 1997 Seadoo XPS

Theres a place out in here in Plainfield called wavetech that I think works on them. But other than that I have no idea. I would make sure the cyliders are dried out, change the oil, pull the carbs and empty and clean them out. fresh gas and it may fire right up for ya. was the engine running when it submerged? if so that could mean some bent rods if it sucked water and hydrolocked. hopefully it stalled before she sank. Oh look over you ignition system and make sure nothign corroded.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!
