I just called a local dealer, and he told me that there are no such
mechanisms ("the watercraft is designed to operate in an upright
position") -- there are two air intakes, one in the front and one in the
back. The rider is responsible for turning the craft over within 15 seconds
to prevent water from entering the engine.
