Post ride after fresh water is pretty easy. Run it for 15-20 seconds after you pull it off the ramp. It helps with mine if I park on an incline with the bow up. I rev the engine a couple of times to help blow out the water. You don't have to get out every drop. After you get it home you could run it again to remove any remaining water if you feel that the first run didn't get it dry. You don't have too much worry about running it dry for short periods of time, but try to give some time for the ski to cool down between runs.

Not a bad idea to pull the seats and be sure there is no water in the hull (sometimes the bilge will not remove it all), and suck it or dry it out. Wiggle the hoses, and look for loose bolts, etc.. and you are pretty much done. You may want to spray around some anti-corrosive spray, but you don't need to do it after every ride in fresh water.

What more do you need to do in salt water?
The fresh water flush procedure mentioned above by Outlaw becomes mandatory after every ride in salt water. In addition, you may want to run Salt-Away or similar product through the ski and rinse the engine with it every once in awhile. Many guys also recommend spraying an anti-corrosive spray on all the metal parts of the ski (CRC-656, Fluid Film, Corrosion X, etc..).
