    from the limited information given at this stage my educated opinion of potentials are as follows.

    1. you have a case of some stuck compression rings causeing excessive blowby….. that's what has push the oil into the intake track...……. ( potential cause)…. incorrect long term strorage technique.. ( did you remove the plugs and spray some sort of lube etc in the cylinders, was the hull still able to breath fresh air, was the inside of the ski 100% dry all storage period.

    2. when you say FILLED the ski up...……… did you put in 75lt of fresh Premium octance fuel
    as 1/2 a tank of fresh fuel on top of 1/2 tank of 12months old crap is an accident waiting to happen.
    old fuel = low octane=unhappy pistons !!!!!!!!!! = white smoke

    more info will refine end result



    3. have you done any changes to the ski since last ride ?
