    HELP! (I think) left the hose on!

    The one thing that I should have never done... I did

    I turned off engine while hose was running! It was about 3-5 seconds.

    I turned off the engine and realized the hose was still on

    Anything I should be doing, inspecting, or am I OKAY?

    it takes quite a lot of water to fill the waterbox up then up the exhaust into the motor
    probably close to a minute

    If in doubt, remove the spark plugs, THEN spin it over. If no water or mist shoots out of the spark plug holes, you are fine.

    If you try to start it with water in the motor it can bend a rod.

    You are not the first to have done this and trust me when I say this, you WON'T be the last. It's happen to almost every PWC owner, including me. Nothing happened and like other have said, if in doubt, pull the plugs and conduct a "Drown Engine TEST". No water, No problem.
