Muffs vs Flush Out Port

I was not sure which category this should be in, however I'll start here.
I recently upgraded my 1978 V-20 Outrage with a 1997 Evinrude 225. Since this is my first experience with an engine that does not belong to the AARP, some things are new. I don't have the original manual, but the Clymer manual infers that the engine may be run with a hose connected to the flush out port. I always used muffs and can't remember any discussion here concerning this alternate method and I want to make sure that I will not harm anything. Any input would be appreciated.

It's been discussed several times.
First off, get an owner's manual and read it. Clymers are
And FWIW my 90 HP Evinrude of the same vintage doesn't have

I agree about the Clymer's, it's what came with the motor. I have ordered a manual but it has not arrived yet.

I have been leaving the the boat in that water lately, are there good after market flushers you can use at dock side?
I guess the muffs would still work, but I done enjoy hanging over the bay...
