    They should last at least two years under normal use............
    The flow is the 1st thing I check when starting out.

    Glad that you got it fixed/

    Popcorn is doable for medium to small boats, this season.
    With big boats a "HIGH" rise truck is needed to back in deeper water to get the boat off the trailer
    and keep the tail pipe above the water line, but it can be done with the right setup.

    An option would be a set of waders.....................

    tight lines.

    If you have a 4 wheel drive it is not a problem. I would not try it without.

    Impellers are a ware item like brake pads and clutches. Good job replacing it before it caused any damage. Not sure why that one failed so quickly but Ive replaced them before that were manufactured slightly off. Side by side difference of 1/8 inch, which made a big difference in clearance. Also had a buddy who would start his motor in the driveway dry (no muffs) who chewed it up pretty good. Hope this one lasts you.


    Me Too....Next time i'm going to buy the impeller kit and replace the whole thing. That's a 2004 engine with a ton of hours on it. A lot of those hours were in freezing temps too. The boat is showing wear also. And my fish finder is obsolete but still working.

    Thanks Ivan! I hope the bigger fish are going to be plentiful this year.

    We released a lot of fish over 24" last year.
