Jim,

Yes, I am using a garden hose to feed the fresh water and that is a quick disconnect. What are my options for running the boat out of the water, early on in this thread Frank said some people draw water from a 5 gallon pail that is being refilled with a garden hose that seems like it would run out of water if the hose couldn't keep up.

What are my options, I'd love to be able to run it for an extended period of time to get some of the bugs out before I take it to the water? Does it matter if it's just idling or if it's running higher RPM's whether it is enough cooling or not.

Thanks, Steve
