Filled the hull up with water. hot water line in front of trans?

Recommended Posts

I was at the lake and noticed the boat was kicking out water.  Thank god for the auto bilge pump.  It made me look at the hull and sure enough there was a lot of water in there.  After some investigation I noticed there was a clear line going into the shaft in front of the trans came off.  It has a barbed fitting but the hose was clear plastic and held on with a zip tie.  Cold water was coming out the barb but I have to assume thats coming from the lake?  Does the hot water from the trans dump back into the lake on that line.  I want to make sure I didn't damage the motor.  The trans has a little wind to it but that may be normal? Fluid looked normal.

Yes, the hot water coming off the trans cooler feeds into the dripless shaft packing.  Water spurting up from the dripless would have been lake water being forced into the boat.  Should be fine and not damaged anything

1/4" hose clamp should solve the problem.
