No, water stays in the impeller housing after you use the boat. That's why I mentioned if the boat had been sitting for a while after winter (cause I drain the impeller housing over winter). If he started it up after being stored, it would have been dry.

Sounds like the dealer gave it a few dry starts and ruined the impeller before he had a chance to get it on the lake.
