Mine hasn't worked since I've owned it. If I have to get out of the driver's seat the ignition gets shut off, no exceptions. Anyone who drives the boat is aware of this rule, and so far it hasn't...

Could also be the thermostat. The upper thermostat must have a bypass hole. If someone has used an automotive thermostat here it won't have the required bypass hole. When I first got mine, the same...

The boarder was certainly not an amateur. He was doing some pretty awesome tricks as they approached. It only takes a few seconds of distraction to cause an accident.

Do you hear the fuel pump prime for about 2 seconds when you turn the key to the on position? If not, I would start with the safety lanyard. Pull it and short the two wires together.

I don't know a lot about it but if you run a fuel injection engine dry you may have to prime the system.

Plus one on the upper tstat needing a hole. What happens is that until the thermostat opens the heads are getting no cooling. The bypass hole allows enough water through to cool the heads until the...

I use 20W-50 in my LT-1 and it runs around 70psi when it's cold. As it warms up the pressure drops off a bit to around 50. Not sure at idle, but 6 seems really low.

Definitely sounds like something is not lined up, or maybe the tensioner is not putting enough tension on it. It should last longer than 2 seasons.

Plus one on the impeller. I would also check the intake screen for debris. Not sure where it is on the newer boats. Mine is in the intake of the transmission cooler.
