8hp yamaha runs hot

In most outboards, it will flow through the prop itself (through the inner prop). There should be a stream of water coming from somewhere around the back end of the motor itself, called a telltale, which visually shows that the water pump inside the outboard is pumping water up around the motor. If you cannot see this, then there is obviously a problem with the water pump or pump impeller that needs to be corrected to prevent the outboard overheating.

Water circulation (coolant) thru outboard motor

Common problem is the thermostats staying closed. If i remember correctly they should be replaced every year. Water should be spitting out on the upper part of the shaft. Good luck on that fishin'
