    I think any 50/50 green coolant mix will work.

    Yep. Water is a better "coolant" than antifreeze. For even better than water, you can add a product like WaterWetter. Living in central Florida, I run about a 95/5% distilled water/antifreeze mix (aside from the additive I mentioned). You're in FL too, though the panhandle... this time of year until December, you could run 95/5%, but more like 80/20% if you keep it outside all winter. (50/50% for farther north)

    the reason why i asked this coolant question is, that some1 told me that there was a marine coolant. and i shouldnt use auto coolant. i already changed my coolant once with honda coolant that is already premixed 50/50. left overs from my car. i figured its the same stuff

    Truthfully, I bet it all comes from the same barrel, green stuff comes from the barrel containing green stuff, but with a different brand label on it, and the same goes for the other mixs.

    As stated in the service manual " Use a blend of 50% antifreeze and 50% demineralized water. Premixed antifreeze/water is availabe from Sea-Doo (P/N 29360003
    This is what I have always used and no issues. They make it sooo easy.
