Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
Since the pump was already wet, you may wind up being ok. When the pump is dry and you run the engine, that is when the impeller can melt and cause overheating. The main thing to do on your next trip out is to keep an eye on the water tell-tale, water pressure gauge and the temp on the engine. If all of that is good, there is nothing to worry about. If the water flow seems less, you would want to replace the impeller.
