Well, if it's any consolation to you, I'll say that you are part of a very large group of extremely fine individual of which I, myself, could run for the CEO. I'll only say that making a mystake once could be called "gaining experience" but if doing it twice then call it "being an idiot" and that's all I'm gonna say about that.

How about forgetting to turn the valve back so you can suck water up through the drive....the next week you go boating and idle out of the marina and see you are over heating! Yep I've done that before!

Funny you mention this. Last month I ran 1 of the motors while still on the lift. No problem. But I must not have gotten the cap on tight on the flush fitting because the next day while ideling out, I noticed my water temp cycling up and down 70* in seconds. Raised the hatch to see the cap dangleing on the chain, so the motor was sucking air, then water, then air, etc...... At least I didn't burn up the 'new' impellor again this time! Tightened cap, away I went. (I really should install valves, but didn't think I would need them.)
