JA: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.
Customer: It ran for 30-45 sec before I turned it off and got hose connected. When restarted it smoked a lot & emitted blackish water from propeller hub for about 1-1.5 min. Now running OK
