    Your alt and starter are probably just fine. Just let em dry out. The MSD will probably be OK also. Just make sure you let it dry completely out before putting power to it.

    An alt and starter see way worse in a car. You would be amazed at the water they see. As for the MSD, just turn it on it side and let it set. It is either going to work or it won't. Nothing much you can do for it, except let it dry out.

    I was going to tell him to send it to me for testing. Then if it turned out to be OK, send him one of my toasted ones, and tell nope, there si no saving it

    Blow them out with forced air, nothing extreme. Them let them sit in front of a fan for a few days. MSD should be fine too.

    Your not going to be able to force air thru the MSD. But the one thing you can do, is if your oven is the type with a pilot light, throw the MSD in the oven. If it electric or electronic ignition, forget it. DO NOT TRY TURNING IT ON. You'll never be able to set it low enough. The only other thing is aim a hand hair dryer at it for a few hours.

    MSD's seem to get more reliable after they've been underwater a couple times. I ran one most of last year that had been sunk twice after my 2 new ones died. Then I put a nice new one on when I cleaned up the motor and then I sunk my boat....the MSD still works fine.

    I wouldn't worry about the alternator, dizzy or starter either...just get the water out of 'em and spray 'em with WD-40 then electronics cleaner.

    I was backed into the doc with the nose away from the shore, and the dickh..d was dredging up river with a tuna barge half on plane. The wave broke over the bow, bounced off the seewall and came over the stern. It all happened within a minute, By the time I got out of the house, it was under water and all that was visable was the scoop!!!!!! I was so shocked at what happened I dont know what boat did it. There was three different boats doing it all weekend long. I almost crashed my boat from one of these jackholes, luckily I was only running 2800 rpm when I hit his wake. I still jumped my boat out of the water, if I was going faster, I would have been scrued big time!!! I have a Marlen Renagade(Mantra) tunnel boat with a BBC in it.

    At least the MSD wasn't "hot" when it went under...... 12 Volts and water are pretty forgiving, but the "power on" and that much water can/will murder high end electronics, like the MSD stuff and electric gauges/tach...But, your power was OFF, so you might skate through this, good luck,
