Dubbs, these marine engines have a RUBBER impellor in the raw water pump.

This rubber uses water for lube, when new/dry they ship with glycerine, best practice is to prime on jose prior to the first run.

When run dry these chunk/tear. When you then go to the lake and this fails you overheat/strand.

Best is new every year, i pull and reinstall, this kid likely does not know, but ypu trash that impellor and you trash a day.

Starting a dry impeller can surely shorten it's life span.

I was thinking (hoping) that maybe the impeller is not installed since it was sitting for the winter.

Add to list of things I need to hide some day. Boat keys. Hoping my battery switch would have slowed mine down were they ever so dumb to do that. My hope is they have been better trained.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Dry exhaust isn't good for the exhaust system, either. Granted, it wasn't run for a long time at high RPM, but it still isn't good.

It might not be a bad idea to use a locking battery switch that can't be bypassed- the key for my overhead garage door was able to start a surprising number of boats when the owners left them for service without the key. When that didn't work, I used test leads with alligator clips.

It's kind of like the kegerator. There are any number of things I can do (and have on hand) to lock it down Tap locks, door locks, remove CO2). But if they want to gain access, they probably will. Better to educate them from an early age so that they don't do too many stupid things later.
