Default 500 efi fuel pumps and vapor locking

My 2000 500 efis only have a elc. fuel pump. and my 1999 500 efis have 2, a mech. on the water pump and a elc. in the cool fuel. I had one eng. vapor lock Sat. Now could this mean a tired fuel pump or someting else.

Well I think I found the prob. I went to flush that eng. out and it would not pick up water. I pulled the raw water pump out and it was trashed. I think if the cool fuel gets hot that could lead to vaper lock. but that eng. never ran more than 8-10 deg. more than the other.
