bobchandler is on a distinguished road
I was making this procedure,harder than it is.My boat is tied to a floating dock. I used a 5gal plastic cat litter bucket,tied to a rope.Tossed it over the motors raised foot.Dropped the foot,tied the rope to my back railing and filled the bucket with water.Ill flush it once aweek,when I wash the boat,if I take it out..A local dealer of Suzuki motors,uses 6hp 4 strokes on his rental fleet. I asked how often to you flush the motors...he replied we dont and they run daily.should be noted their operation in in brackish water,off a fresh water river,thats runs into the gulf
