matty8hiker says:

I think you avoided one of the main safety precautions, reducing the risk of a fire.The most fundamental thing is to first open the engine hood to clear any potential fumes, check the engine, fuel lines etc for leaks and so fourth.

And I always have my bilge blower activated, and let it run for at least a minute prior to starting the engine. My boat is an older one, and I had a blower installed to modernize it’s safety features. Also, many ski boats have a foot throttle like a car.
