Re: Cooling Issue

Hose btw scoop and strainer is good. Pulled all that and ran water thru. No obstructions and not collapsed. So I did take off hose on outlet side of impeller housing.

Re: Cooling Issue

Thx for the replies. Got a laugh Bill from your note. No worries! Kens, first thing i did when it happened was to check scoop! Definitely installed the right way. Guess it’s a process of elimination.

Last month running about 2500 rpm, smelled rubber burning and engine temp went up. Raw water cooled. Impeller failed. I was close to ramp so engine didn’t get excessively hot.

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Thanks Mick. I have two batteries under the rear seat. I think weight distribution is just about right with them in rear. Boat planes out pretty quickly. Will try and take some pics tomorrow of the installation.

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

No insulation on engine box on my build and engine noise is pretty minimal. Exhaust noise much more prevalent without mufflers but that rumble Is simply awesome 😀.

Your build is coming along nicely!

Re: Klondike Build

Nice. Had a relay issue on our big boat (berthed in Emeryville) and took a while to trace it down but sure was satisfying once I did. Looking forward to your launching! Congrats on the date Steve.

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

I did install the guard rail but didn’t have time prior to launch date to install the spray rails. I did plan on putting them on later but back seat stays dry without them fortunately. Still don’t have them after 5 yrs with no complaints from rear seat riders.
