Smurf-Star: Misadventures in Blunderland 2016

What's up my fellow MC'ers?!?! Man, 2016 has been a different year. Not a bad year, actually a pretty good year just not how I expected it. We rebranded one of our venues which has taken more of my time than usual. Winter weather stuck around extra long followed by weekends of rain. It feels like my summer has just begun and it's almost over lol. With the way things are going we will probably have an early winter!!! So not much to report at this time with only a few hours on the water. However at 267hours the original impeller went out. I knew immediately what was going on when the hi temp warning screen popped up and the computer took away 3/4 of my throttle. Luckily I was loading onto the trailer when it all went down. A quick call to my man Jeff at Texas Mastercraft and I had 2 impellers at my doorstep the next day. I now have a backup. Here is how it went down.

I don't even know what an impeller is for! Other than the ones in the ballast motors...

267 hrs on one impeller?

Why have I been changing mine every 50 hrs or once a year for when you can go 267 hrs before you screw up your cooling system with impeller shards???

;P

David, same idea but this one cools your motor and transmission. Most of us replace this critical part yearly.

simple, did the entire job in under 1 hour. I slid the belt off took the 2 bolts that hold the pump on the motor, took the pump inside, refilled my margarita, took off the 3 bolts holding pump together, took bad part out put new part in put back 3 bolts put back pump looped belt back over pulley .....oh yea took off 2 hoses and replaced them. BOOM, i was back on the water.
