Wondering if anyone pulls their spark up to shore, not right on but like just the front end so it won't float away if your on the beach. I would like to I am just nervous of damaging the intake grate or something.
We do all the time but make sure to switch off engine according to depth of water. When leaving I usually push them out before starting, then start and let idle a few seconds, then briefly to reverse before going forward.
Not sure if this is cleaning anything out, just trying as a precaution.
That's what I do Straight. Slowly coast to shore and shut engine off, hop off and grab the nose and pull her up onto the beach. When I leave, I carfully push it off the beach then I rock the ski from left to right to get anything out of the grate that might be there. I then push the ski foward as I jump on to get to deeper water and then start it up. Has worked for me since 96'
