How many jet ski deaths a year?
What’s more, as jet skis offer much less protection than boats, in case of an accident, a jet ski rider is much more exposed to injuries. Based on the USCG report, 600-700 jet ski accidents are reported each year, resulting in around 40 deaths, although this tendency has been declining over the past decade.
Do jet skis get clogged?
Clogged Cooling System
Sand, mud, or small debris can easily get into these systems, causing a jam. If the cooling water is blocked somewhere, the engine starts to overheat fairly quickly. That’s why you have to inspect your jet ski carefully. In many cases, only the jet intake is clogged.

How do you get water out of a jet ski hull?
