    REALLY Dumb Question...

    Ok, I am kicking myself for having to ask this, but I have looked all over my Boat and I cannot find where to put the Hose when I want to flush out the Engine after a ride.

    I looked in the Pump Area and all inside the Engine Compartment and I just can't find it. It's prob. right in front of me, and I can't see it.

    This is for an '07 S150 SCIC

    Should be a threaded water hose connector on the upper right side of the pump!

    You can buy adaptors that are supposed to make it easier to hook the water hose up back there, but I have yet to find one that makes it very easy. It's bad enough when the boat's on the trailer, but it's just about impossible for me to hook it up when the boat is on the lift at the boathouse. Flushing is so important, it should be easier.

    Flush adapter

    I made a flush adapter useing 8" of 3/8" hose , 2 hose clamps, a male & female barbed hose ends, & a hose quick disconnect.
    Screw the male end of the QD into the flush port on the boat (leave it there forever , dont remove it).
    Then when you need to flush the exhaust, just lower reverse gate down, take the flush adapter & snap the QD ends together, the adapter hose sticks out far enough to get the garden hose on easily, I found that using the smaller more flexable 8" hose is easier to manuever to the flush port, when your done just pull on the QD release collar & pull out adapter.

    I don't think your suppost to restrict the flush port by leaving adapters screwed in????????

    do the new boats have the flush point under the engine hatch?? that is how me and my dad flush our '98 Challenger 1800. all we have to do is block off the point by the pump and connect the hose to a point that is eye level and easy to get to
