Overheating is one of the worst things that can happen to an engine. It’s even worse on the water than on land. Besides spoiling your watersports fun and requiring a long tow back to the dock or launching ramp, an overheated engine will likely cost you big repairs or even an engine replacement.
Having a properly operating sea strainer is crucial to helping your performance boat keep its cool. As their name implies, sea strainers strain out all the gunk and junk that your boat draws from the water it’s floating on. That keeps debris and contamination from clogging up your water pump, intercooler, cylinder head and other critical parts of your boat’s operating system.
The sea strainer parts and flush kits at Bakes Marine can help protect your performance engine against catastrophic failure. We carry all the replacement parts you need, like mesh, gaskets and sea strainer bodies, as well as sea strainer flush kits that can clean the entire raw water cooling circuit in your boat.
