    Blower on 2006 Sea Doo twin Rotax engines

    I have recently purchased a 2006 Sea Doo and there is a lable that advises to run the blower for 4 minutes prior to starting the engines. When I turn the switch to the on position I do not hear anything. Does anyone know if I should be able to hear it run or is supposed to be silent?

    Thanks in advance.

    You will be able to hear it, if unsure lift your engine hatch. if inoperable get it repaired, fuel vapors are not something you want to ignite in a hot engine compartment... at a minimum lift your hatch and let it air out.

    the blowers on seadoo boats are pretty low quality, replace em with a top shelf unit.

    a blower is about as important as a life jacket on a boat.

    get in the habit of running them before you start the engine at all times.

    opening the hatch may not do the job.

    the blower is located on one side of the engine hatch ( typically the "right" or starboard side when you are sitting behind the wheel.) it's a ducted fan..you can see into it from the engine hatch cover when open.

    I'd politely suggest you get an owners manual and study it. It is vitally important for the safety of yourself and others that the captain of a boat know ever switch, vent, filler and all the various systems on his ship. For you the need to know about sterring, throttle and things of that nature are important.

    Unless you want to be like the guy that mistook the corrugated air vent on his 97 gtx for a fuel fill pipe.

    Or the guy that pulled in here last week sheepishly asking me if I could show him where the hatch release was on his boat so he could connect the battery. If you don't know, it could take quite a long time to stumble on it under the port side wind cover.

    One good way to expert up is to study the parts diagrams
    http://partsfinder.onlinemicrofiche....=171&b=10&c=13

    go thru every page and make note what the parts are and where they go.

    btw, you don't have to spend $120 on a seadoo blower..a good blower will cost you less then 50 or so if you can get it installed yourself.

    buy the seadoo blower if you are not comfortable doing that. That's one damm important part of your boat. Make SURE it works.
