Not sure, but evidently there are layers who think they do!

I would say they are all from gas fumes and were not ventilated, but wow. A quick search shows all kinds of similar videos, I'd never heard of a jetski going up though.

we lawyers can sue over anything...occupational hazzard. One of my favorites was a case down in south puget sound where the defense expert testified that the accident was caused by a "rogue wave"...like the ones you see on TV and therefore not the operator's fault. Huh?

I've seen fuel filters rotted out at the bottom and hulls full of fuel more than once. I don't work on boats for a living.

Gas, Air, Spark. When the triad is combined you get what you see in the video. Blowers have a limited benfit. It will remove vapor, but not fix a fuel leak. This is why sticking your head in the bilge and sniffing prior to start is so important.

These folks didn't do a sniff test, vent the bilge and verify there isn't a fuel leak present.

Yeah BUT. We see over and over again that big manfacturers play the numbers odds and dont take action to fix a dangerous situation until the lawyer do sue... so seeing there is organized legal groups is a sign theres a problem....

I had a customer come in with an outboard that blew up. Lost the cowling and started the engine on fire
