    upside down again

    This weekend was probably the last full weekend of good weather here in Adelaide before winter so we made full use of it on the Spark.
    consequently, we somehow managed to roll it a total of 4 times lol.
    And despite the fact that on 2 of those occasions it didn't cut off immediately (the rider wasn't thrown far enough away for the lanyard to detach) I was very surprised that there was STILL no water in the hull.

    no damage to the Spark, it fired back up right away every time & ran fine.
    thankfully those who ended up the wrong way round made a quick effort to pull the lanyard free so it was only running for maybe 10 seconds max.

    Exactly the same here I have rolled mine a few times and never had a drop of water in the hull, they are designed to be upside down.

    The only problem I had when rolling it over once is that the lanyard got caught around the throttle and revved it upside down sucking the oil away from the pump and causing me a warning alarm and putting the ski in limp home mode. Took a minute or two riding very slowly to suck the oil back down again.
