    Not sure to what extent you want to clean the bay, but I did this a few weeks ago:


    Removed seats, cowling, and plastic motor cover.
    Purchased a gallon Simple Green, diluted about a 1 cup SG to 3 cups water,
    poured into a spray bottle and misted everything I could via spray bottle.
    Then mixed 1/2 gallon w/3 & 1/2 gallons of water, poured contents of bucket straight into
    engine bay.
    Drove around the block a few times, w/a quick acceleration and quick
    braking - wanted to slosh it all around...
    Unhooked trailer from truck, opened the bilge drains, tilted ski back and rinsed the bay liberally
    w/the garden hose.
    After rinsing, fogged engine bay w/Bombi Lube and allowed to dry in the
    shade all afternoon.
    Ski came out clean as a whistle...

    Engine can stay cold.

    Tie a plastic bag over/around the engine air intake to prevent water from getting splashed in.
