    No Water from Prop-gctid826622

    My boat is a '91 Bowrider 175 with the 3.0 and alpha one.

    Previously when I ran my boat on muffs there was water blown from the prop with a few revs.

    Last time I had it on the muffs there was no water coming from the prop it was all coming from the transom.

    I have just puled the thermostat and it opened about 1/4" when I boiled it on the stove. so I assume that this is OK.

    What should I check next?

    Thanks

      What to check next; nothing. You have plenty of water flow at the transom ports. Unless you are running at high rpm little to no water will exit the prop hub plus you have the drive tilted up slightly.

        Totally normal, Not enough water pressure yet to overcome the transom bypass
        Boatless at this time
