Still sounds like a bad battery. I'd pull it and have it load tested. I've seen new ones DOA. Did you use a battery with enough takes a pretty good sized battery to turn these skis over.

Don't hold down the throttle when cranking..........that will keep it from starting too.

Check to be sure the lanyard is pulling the switch all the way up. some after market lanyards will not work on Yamaha skis.

Check to be sure there is nothing stuck in the pump (weeds, rope, plastic, etc.).

Be sure you start the engine before you start the water if you are running it on a hose, other wise you will hydro-lock the engine and it may never start again.
