2003 Volvo penta. Boat overheated.Impeller just replaced.

Customer Question
2003 Volvo penta. Boat...

2003 Volvo penta. Boat overheated.Impeller just replaced. Doesn't seem to have circulation in cooling system.On water pump on front of engine the tube that the hose attaches to seem loose and water does drip ftom this tube. could the pump suck air around this tube and not pick up the water and circulate it?

Mechanic's Assistant: 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. Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?

When boat was taken out of storage the hoses were hooked up backwards and that was the overheating problem at first.
