2006 VX110 deluxe will not start after leaving drain holes unplugged

Thanks for looking. I know I made a rookie mistake and left the drain holes open. I put my ski in the water and started right up backed it off the trailer and docked it. I came back about 30 minutes later and tried to start it no luck. I realized I left the holes unplugged so I took off the seat to see about 4 inches of water in the hull. I then pulled the jet ski back on the trailer and let the water rush out. Once it was mostly all out I left the seat off and tried to start it all I heard was a humming from the fuse area. The panel comes on and all. I checked the batter a day later and all 12v are there. It gives no sign of even wanting to turn over. I have never had a problem with this jet ski in the 3 weeks I have had it. Any help will be greatly appreciated seeing as the only shop that will look at it is an hr away. I have not taken the plugs out to check for water in the cylinders yet.

I assume you have checked any fuses that may have burned out?

The water may have caused a short circuit across the battery terminals. It is possible you fried some electronics. Going to have to get it diagnosed by the professionals or get your hands on a multi meter and start measuring.
