Good day! General question has anyone changed their seawater impeller while boat was in the water? Just preparing myself. Does water flow in from the pickup line if you remove the hose? It looks like it could be close to the water line.

You get some water what is in the engine, not from outside.
But you can use a plug. When you remove the hose just push the plug in.
Good luck.

The raw water pump is below the water line so yes sea water will come in. You need to raise the input hose up and I prefer to plug it once removed from the pump housing.

Thanks for the heads up. I thought that might happen. Yes I will plug it that's a good idea.

I've just removed the intake hose and stuffed a rag into it and lashed it up high to get it above the water line. It's doable, but I would certainly make sure my bilge pumps were working and I had power to my battery charger before I started the job.

Successful impeller change took about an hour. Thanks for the input. I plugged the intake line with a rubber plumbing stop worked well..
