Forgive my naive question, but can an Atomic 4 by started while a boat is on the hard? I'm assuming they are water cooled, which presents a problem while on the hard. But is there a method of attaching a water hose to run test it out?

I'm considering the purchase of a used boat with an A4 that hasn't been run in 3-4 years. Among many other potential issues, I'm concerned about the A4's condition. Before I spend the money on launching/sea trialing the boat, I'd love to know if the A4 runs.

Wow, you've just made me more apprehensive then ever to even consider this boat with an A4 that's been sitting for a few years. Thanks Val!

Seriously, thanks for the info. Sounds like a lot of work for me as a potential buyer just to see if she'll fire up.
