    99 Genesis - is she dead??

    Hey folks, happy summer.

    I have a 99 Genesis that is stock. Took it out for the first time and a friend brought it back to the boat after a 30 minutes run and said that it sounded weird.

    I took it for a spin and it sounded a bit "tinny". Made the right power but just sounded strange, like the pump was making too much noise. I took off the engine cover and it didn't sound like it was coming from the engine itself... it wasn't any louder with the seat off in other words.

    I put the seat back on and headed for the doc. By the time I was within sight of the doc, it started surging and seemed like it was missing very badly. Engine sounded good between misses, but it seemed like it was not pumping the same water for the engine speed even with the miss. I killed the engine and drifted in.

    Took it home and parked it. When you hit the starter, everything sounds like it always has, but I'm afraid to fire it up.

    Any thoughts here? Is the sled dead?

    Thanks all,
    Scot

    I would try and start it. If you hear anything odd shut it down right away. Next would be to pull the jet pump and see if the noise goes away with the engine running. Has the jet pump been serviced before?

    It has 130 hrs and I've only had it for 2 years. Pump hasn't been touched since I've had it, who knows how long it's been...

    Then I definitely suggest pulling the jet pump and checking it out. If I were a betting man, I would guess thats where your problem may lie.
