The only thing I can think of is there was an interruption of water and the impeller over heated. OP mentions strainer - notorious for air inline if not sealed properly..... no water - heat...bye bye impeller..so sad...

You will need to find all the pieces that came off of that impeller as well as any pieces that came off of any prior impellers.... Check all hoses and coolers down line from the pump....You may also find pieces of impeller in the intake hose prior to the pump... Backflush all the hoses and try to account for all missing vanes.... And by the way, where are you in the northeast....I'm in MA.

even new impellers can go bad. one common problem is the brass inner separating from the rubber, the impeller looks fine, but only the inner center is spinning....it baffled me for a couple hours on the lake one day.

if water pick up screen is clean, tranny cooler is clean, hoses on correctly......change the $40 impeller. :-)

Ohh boy

Just picked up my used boat last month and I think I am having this issue. No water feeding into the basket thus none to cool the engine. Got the new impeller and headed tomorrow.

Inspect trans cooler.. flush the trans cooler to make sure it's clear.... that will eliminate one source of problem.

Learned that lesson as well, I've had 2 that did this, one with very low hours.
