Dyna craft bait boat leak at impella

Hello, I have a Dyna Craft Bait Boat MKII some time it made the following problem, during operation sometimes stops working, and after a while starts to work again. I have heard the same problem with the same boat, whether it is manufacturing defect and can anything be done to remedy. I think it is something related to the scope of the boat, but good to hear your opinion. Thanks

Check the plug in the cilinder that is missing for oil or carbon deposits, it may be the valves not closing tight.

I would have the compression on all cilinders checked and the fuel injectors cleaned and tested by a pro.

Good luck bud

Hit big puddle, drove home now won't start.

Either there is condensation in your distributor cap or you have got water in the plug holes. Remove the plug leads and using a cloth clear the lose water, a hair dryer will evaporate the rest. If it is in the distributo cap, take it off by removing the screws or clips and dry it out, as well as the inside of the distributor. Spray it with silicone oil to keep it water proof.
