Towing an FX SHO
Ok, i realize it has been discussed and i do remember reading something about it awhile back, but i am wondering...
Does anyone have a pic they can post up of the actual line you must clamp shut in case you need to tow it.

Nice, i do appreciate the response, but i am looking for a clear pic of the hose itself. The pic in that site is a good one but being a noob with my FX i dont really know which hose it is talking about. Sorry if this seems like a dumb question to most. >_<

if you follow the flush hose down into the botom of the ski
it will go to a 3 way conector on NA skis and a 4 way(one heads to the intercooler) conector on the sho's
one of the hoses on the 4 way will head towards the rear of the ski the rest will go forward
you need to put the clamp or valve on the hose heading to the rear , between the 4 way peice and rear of ski
it's prety easy if you follow the hose down from the flush conector can't realy go wrong

There are 2 thru-hulls in the transom, & if I rememver right, the cooliong hose should be the one on the bottom & the top one for the siphon bilge. I thought about installing in inline valve in the cooling hose but if you look inside those valves they look a little restrictive. I just keep a rubber cap in my toolkit so if I ever need to tow the ski I can just pull the hose of the thru-hull fitting & block it off.
