Most of the time It tells you you have a problem long before the temp goes to 250

every boat i have owned had them or i put em in

first defence against overheating
temp didnt get over 200, could just hear it drop off and start to suck air and I shut down quick, then put in reverse. What i did learn was not to turn off the motor once the bag is free, just let it start to circulate cool water, if not then you just have a dry block staying hot....


And I was GLAD it came off very quickly

Yep,
I sucked up a bunch of Sea grass that was floating in the Barge Canal yesterday. Going in reverse in a jet boat doesn't clear it out. Had to jump into the water, dive under the boat and I pulled 2-3 Hands full of seagrass out of the jet intake grate!
Jumped back in, started her up and off I went.

Actualy you should shut it down and let it cool slowly . Pumping cold water through a very hot cast iron block = cracks

If you're up on plane get her going as fast as you can, shut the motor down and pull the shift into reverse as quick as possible. Usually get the water flowing through the pump backwards enought to clear things out.

Last year I sucked a plastic bag in through the low water pickup. Temp. Skyrocketed so I shut it down and checked the sea-strainer. It was clear but I still wasn't pumping any water. I had to get towed in and when we pulled the boat out of the water there was a 1" piece of bag sticking out. I ended up pulling a whole plastic grocery bag out of the pickup
After that episode I installed a water pressure gauge.

Unfortunatley, I was in a Manatee zone! But one of the many cool things about this little Seaddo jet boat is we can run along the outside of most of the Manatee zones, because it'll run in 2 feet of water!
