As a new member to this forum I have a question about maintenance I was hoping to get some opinions on. I have a new 260 ultra x and after its first day on the water perhaps two things happened when it came home. Firstly I connected the hose and ran water before starting the engine (for about 60 seconds).... I've checked the oil and it's looking perfect. Starts no problems so I think Im ok with this mistake but any reassurance would be most welcomed.
The second retarded event that may have happened was the ski was run with the hose attached and water on however the motor may have been on for about a minute instead of the 15 seconds recommended. Should I be worried, very worried, hysterical ..... Or all will be ok but don't do it again ?
too much time around boats and no experience with skis so any advice would be most welcomed. Cheers
