Bilge pump temperature

Yesterday we had the boat out on smith mountain lake and it started raining then pouring. We waited out the rain then had an awesome wakeboard session on glass water...forward bilge pump was running like expected with all the rain and the kids jumping in and out water soaked. When we got back to the dock, noticed that the water coming from the front bilge overboard was very warm(hot) Donít recall the water ever being hot before but honestly donít know if Iíve ever felt it before...engine bilge pump didnít need to turn on as there was only a little water in engine compartment.

I wouldn’t worry about it. Pending how long the water sat in your bilge it could have warmed up from the heat soak of the engine.

If you want to trouble shoot fill bilge with water, run the bilge and see if the motor is hot.

That could be. We sat in a cove and idled for about 10-15 minutes to let the cell pass..then headed out for a wakeboard run of about 30-40 minutes and then back to the dock...

I dont see a 3A bilge pump heating the water enough for the fraction of a second it passed through. I think it was engine.

When my bilge discharge was hot it was a blown off water hose to my exhaust.
Both times on 2 boats

I just happened to be in the water tonight when my bulge kicked in and thought of this thread. Water was definitely warm, not hot, but warm like bath water.

Does your boat have a heater? If so check the cool and lines and make sure they are not leaking.
