As the “Rime of the Ancient Mariner” had it in a slightly different context, “Water, water everywhere/Nor any drop to drink.” Even though your boat is surrounded by water, its engine can still overheat. And overheating is one of the worst things that can happen to any kind of motor.
Your boat water pump impeller is a critical part of your engine’s cooling system. If it breaks and you run the engine till it overheats, it can leave your boat dead in the water and you with a costly repair bill. That’s why it’s wise to carry a spare on board and to take good care of impeller water pumps.
