Back on the Water
Did the shakeout trip this last weekend at Lake Powell.
Temps were high 60's to low 70's.
I had the impeller changed out by a mechanic at our storage place. We backed the boat in far enough to drop the outdrive and run for a minute.
I could hear water flowing under the engine block and immediately feared frozen/cracked block(I did Winterize but still...)
After standing on my head in the engine compartment I could see the source--it was the 2 hoses going into the new impeller.
We pulled the boat back up the ramp and upon further investigation, the clamps on both hoses had not been tightened.
After I replaced both clamps and tightened, we tried again, with much better results.
Guess I better post a couple pics of the new season
