    Acceleration and impeller

    Symptom- from a dead stop if I go full throttle all the ski would do it rev high and hardly move.
    From what I was told this means the impeller needs 2 be replaced and maybe even the housing around it.

    I took it apart today and the impeller doesn’t seem like its that bad. A little copped up with a few digs but over all, to me it doesnt seem destroyed.

    Would slight chips and digs do this?

    It was running fine and then all of a sudden this started to happen… I thought it was because I drove is shallow water and maybe sucked something up
