I have a 92 WR III and am quite new to these things. I live on a river that has "brackish" water from the ocean. I leave the WR in the water but would like to flush it out after the weekend but not convenient to take it to a water source. I do have a tank I could fill and let run gravity to the engine. Would that work? Also what is the best fitting to hook to? The one on top of the engine or the one with the screw plug in it?

you need to run it
but it needs to be out of the salt water or it is useless
Yep. If you have a lift (either ride on or other), and can get it out of the water, you can flush it where it is. If it is sitting in the water it will still be drawing in saltwater. Also, 1/2 the reason for getting the boat out of the salt water is so that the mechanics are out of the water and rinsed out. If your boat is stored in brackish water 24/7 it will not last.

I understand it needs to be out of the water, But will gravity feed be enough of a water supply? Also what port is the best to hook to?
