    Is it too late???

    Got a ski that the lift fell over  and sank the ski. Dealership got it out and checked it over and totaled the ski. I brought it home and took the oil out of it this am and found it like this. Is it too late for me to save the ski. Can I change the oil three or for times till it turns clear. Do I run the motor in the lake with the oil cap off and try to boil out the water then change the oil again
    Any help or past experiences much appreciatedClick image for larger version.

    What year and model?
    How many running hours?

    How long has the water been inside the engine?

    How long was the ski underwater?

    Have you (or the dealer) opened and drained all the water from the engine air intake system?

    It's a 2015 GTX 155 S not sure how long it was in nder or how much water was even in it. I got it from a client who I work for. The dealership changed the oil and got it started ran it on a hose but it still was draining the battery so they totaled the ski. I got it and want to try and save it. It doesn't have a ton of hours like 38 or so

    Checking the air intake now to see what's happened there. I really appreciate the input wondering if I should take it to the lake and run it with the oil filler cap off to try and boil the water out I have read that someplace just trying to get input

    Just dealt with the same flooded ski from a customer. Sat under for four days. Drain intake hoses and manifold, drain supercharger if applies. Change oil. Took 8oil changes. Boil out produces using buds to monitor temp. Then supercharger rebuild. The shop manaul states all steps

    Checking the intake you mean the air intake right. I don't have a super charger so that's a good thing.

    Salt or fresh water?

    If it was saltwater than I'd be really concerned about all the wiring and electronics.
