    I would read the manual. I do start mine out of the water but I only let mine run for less than 1 minute as I do not hook a hose to it. I only do this to be sure it will start before I take it to the lake. I do not want to get to the lake and have a no start. It seems that I have read that it should not be ran even with water for more than 5 minutes as it has no cooling to the drive system. I can allways be wrong so read the manual.

    YES, you can hook up the hose to the seadoo and have them run for up to 5 minutes. Connect the hose and start the seadoo. Turn on the water after it is started. Turn off the water, than shut down the seadoo. This way it won't allow water to back flow into the engine through the exhaust due to no back pressure from the engine not running. The bearings and seals on the impeller jet pump, are cooled from being in the water. When it is on the trailer it doesn't have that cooling effect so they will get hot after about 5 minutes.
    I pre start my seadoo's too, dry before I leave for the launch too. Just for a second or 2 to be sure it will start at launch. Peace of mind is worth lot.

    I thought there was a place in the back to hook up a water hose, seemed like they had a female fitting built in, was I dreaming this???

    So just where do I install my hose???

    Yes, it is pointing out the back by the jet pump assy nozzle. You can get a fitting at a seadoo dealer(cheaper at Walmarts) to do a quick connection, or screw the hose in the fitting.

    The fitting on the right in the picture. It looks like a tube.It should have threads in it for a garden hose. The fitting should screw into the threads in the pipe.

    If you go to walmarts, you can get a fitting that is like a quick-connect... to connect to the hose and it screws in the connection on the back of the seadoo. than you don't have to keep screwing in the hose...just a quick connect. Cost like $2.00
