    In the early days of Watercraft it was common to flip the ski and ingest water.

    Kawi came out with a crank case dump lever. Pulled it provides a dump at the bottom of the engine to allow draining of the engine before attempting a restart after plunging the ski.

    This was illuminated later as it would stick or rust shut. Some even had them stuck open and cause a severe lean condition doing engine damage.

    If you do have the motor rebuilt then please get rid of that port and have it sealed well with welding it.

    It should be a drain for the engine i belive. I just bought the same ski recently and wondered the same thing. That is the answer I ran across.
