I do the taste test, I leave the engine running while I wash the boat with soapy water, I use that wax stuff for cars, then when I need the hose pipe I stop the engine and rinse off. Normally about 10 mins.
My brother stacks his rib but still uses earphones to run the engine with it still in the water - better than nothing, I have heard of people running their engine in sail bags full of freshwater whilst still in the drink, although obviously not in gear!!!
