Your towboat engine is built to last and to withstand the high stress and demands of high-speed boating. But even the best-built engine won't endure if it overheats. Overheating is one of the most serious issues that can afflict any motor. It typically leads to major repairs or complete replacement of the motor.
Compelling Impeller Selection
Failing impellers are leading cause of overheating for performance boats. When your boat's impeller fails, it can't deliver cooling water to the engine. Unless you quickly shut down the engine, things can go south fast.
That's why experts recommend you change your pump impeller at the beginning of every season or every 100 to 200 hours of operation. This preventive maintenance can save you money as well as disappointment on your watersports outings. Some boaters even carry a spare impeller on board in case trouble arises on the water.
Your towboat engine represents a major investment, so it's smart to buy the best when it comes to maintenance.
