Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Exhaust elbow and cooling

Danny and Yvonne SIMMS

Hi pat. If it was blocked enough to significantly slow the salt water flow I guess it could. The fact that now the motor runs cooler seems to suggest that to be the case

I think my boat has been running hot for for a couple of years . I just ran it for about 45 minutes after launching and it ran much cooler than previously. The only thing I have done , is that I cleaned the exhaust elbow, it was not that bad. However I also reamed out the channel that I believe water passes through. My question... If that channel is partially blocked would that result in the engine runner hotter.
