Yeah, old 2- strokes with separate ignition & batery charging coils will start & run no problem. I dunked the battery switch on the old boat (don't ask!) and the Suz ('93 DT25) ran for a week as a pull start machine, even with the CDI.

Needless to say I ended up using spare handlheld VHF for the tail end of the week, and on the new boat the switch is above toob height on the assumption if the water is higher than that, a corroding switch will be the least of my worries......
