HELP w/VX110 Oil in Hull

So my daughter took her jet ski out for the first time this year yesterday and she said that after being out for about an hour the oil light came on. I had checked everything before she left and oil level was fine. When she got back to the house and removed the seat there was oil throughout the whole hull. Oil level was nearly half empty. The ski is a 2007 VX110 Deluxe. Any ideas of where to start looking? I will be honest and say that I am not that mechanically inclined!!! My first thoughts were either the oil filter had worked loose of maybe a hose has came off??? Any help would be much appreciated.

I had the same thing happen to me. It was the equalization hose. It had dry rotted. I just replaced the hose and used zip ties to secure it on. Just check all your hoses. There should be two or more connected to the carb, just look for a loose one or one that is off. Just make sure it is still rubbery and replace it if it is not. Also use zip ties or small hose clamps to keep them on. If she runs it without oil, it will overheat and seize the engine.

Thanks everyone. The oil filter had started leaking. Once I did an oil change and changed the filter it stopped. Thanks for all the help.
