We took a '98 SeaDoo XP Limited for a run and mistakenly forgot to put the storage compartment cover on (covers the motor area). Doing some sharp turns we may have taken some water over the nose and into the engine compartment. The two carbs have individual flame arrestors on them. The ski ran back to the dock but wouldn't start after that. I've pulled and cleaned plugs (only slightly damp/oily), still no start. Spark is good both plugs. I've tried starting with starting fluid w/ no effect. Any ideas? I was thinking carbs may have ingested water, but they ran back to the dock. Any way to drain carbs? Thanks for any helpful advice.

Thanks for the response. I have a '97 XP also (which was still starting & running after this incident), and after letting them both sit for a couple days I switched plugs and the '98 started. Put the plugs back in their original skis and both are still running... going to get a spare set of plugs for these occasions.
