    Yes, but keep it under 5 minutes(I think) or you risk overheating the carbon ring on the driveshaft.

    I personally wouldnt even let it idle like that until i broke it in as it wont let it heat cycle the way its suppose to on break in...

    If your really worried about it, tilt the ski back and fill the inner hull with water up to the carbon seal, have another hose spraying water on the bottom of the ride-plate, all while on the hose. This should give you a little more run time<- tip my dealer mechanic told me.

    Why would you want to run it on the hose? IMO run it on the hose for the least amount of time possible ... I have never run my ski on the hose for more than one minute (more like 30 seconds if that). Things heat up and it is hard on the carbon seal; try to avoid running it out of the water as much as possible ... you will have less problems.

    I'd be careful about putting any fresh water in the ski unless you store it in a warm place. Any water that does not come out after flushing and can potentially cause damage if it freezes... Ron
