Yes just use the flush connection to run the engine. It's designed to be run like that.
You know not to just turn on the water without starting the boat immediately, right?
I disconnect the raw water intake hose to the engine, stuff the garden hose in it and water the engine that way. Same as flush connection

I watched the tech from TXMC do the first oil change on our boat while it was on the lift and he didn't heat it up, just used a fluid extractor.

I know....I've been draining oil, slowly, using drill motor pumps, even turkey basterd, lol, to change oil, trans, etc for years. Broke down and bought a vacuum extractor last year. Sooo much easier.

Unless I was less than 30 min from the dealer and they were doing oil changes for $59.99 I'd do it at home.
Even at a half hour away, that's 2 hours drive time to drop off and pick up. Call it 3 hours.
In 4 hours I can change oil, trans fluid and Winterize the boat including ballast.
2 gallons of 15-40, oil filter and 3 gal of windshield washer fluid, 1 for each ballast tank. $50
