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.
Besides wiping out a day or more of fun for you, your family and friends, an overheated engine can leave you with a costly repair bill. It can also be a long tow back to the dock — and a potentially expensive one. That’s why it’s wise to carry a spare on board and take good care of impeller water pumps.
