I have a 2012 waverunner that appears not to be peeing out water from the front hull hole. Ran it first time this year and after about 20 minutes my son said he didn't see any water coming out. It was running fine up till that point, up to 50mph, no overheating lights, alarms, or loss of power. Went back to the dock which was another 20 minute ride and still no overheating indication and it ran fine. When I put it away at the end of the seasoThoughts?

The pisser is just an indicator, that water is flowing through your system. It's not meant to be the full exit for all cooling water, which means your pisser can be clogged with bugs or something but the engine intake for cooling is still functioning and your boat is still cooling properly.

Take some weed whacker line and push it through your intake to clear out any obstructions.
