    It may be the battery vent for the flooded cell batteries.

    Almost all batteries are sealed now. So no real reason for it. You could remove it.

    That hose is definitely the lead acid battery vent line.

    If you trace it out. It will connect to the starboard(right side) side of the ski under the rub rail towards the front of the ski.

    Like Keno states. Most batteries are of the sealed type(I use a sealed one as well). But the wet type batteries are still sold at many stores and are slightly less expensive than sealed batteries. So I would keep it on case you go with the wet type battery and need to reconnect that vent line.

    Yup you guys helped alot. I was scratching my head as to why this is laying up front near the engine on one machine and in the back on the other. I still have lead acid flooded batteries in these machines until they die so i will hook it up for now.
