+1 on checking the impellers regularly. We replaced the port side one 2 years ago and when inspected last week it had a torn fin. The starboard side one was missing 3 fins! This required further inspection down the line to retrieve the missing bits. Now have 2 new impellers and happy that this is part of our annual maintenance.

Doug, Kathy,

I will add to inspect those impellers every year. The point is maintenance is a sales business, executed by the mechanics.
So I discuss what should be done with sales. They write the work order and plan with the chief-mechanic when it will be done. I can assure you that the last word about it isn't said yet. When sales say it should be done each 5 years why they didn't do it last year. But more important I want to know why don't they inspect them each year. Winter engine inspection is on the bill but not specified. That will be changed count on that! :) Doug, glad to see you landed safe! Snow gone?
