New to boating. Bought a 1983 chapparrel and am not sure where to put water hose to start the engine while out of water.

volvo or merc  most use the muffs on the intakes, volvo may have a flushing port near the crank mounted pump. Usually has a Blue cap, remove the cap and screw on a hose

You need to purchase a set of drive muffs. You will connect your garden hose to those and slide the rubber pieces over your drive intake screens.

Those mufflers with water CAN slide off while you are looking around or on a cell phone...……… costly mistake to repair.  I do in water only. I have the time to save money for food & drinks.
