OH duh! (lost my water!)

Seawater I mean Yesterday we did a trail run on the ramp with my boat on it's yard trailer, then put the boat back in the water. It never crossed my mind that all the water would run out the seawater intake. Now it's not pumping. it's a universal 5416, Oberdorfer pump, never had great flow but always pumped. This seems to be an air problem seals? gasket? We put a new impeller (Globe run dry type) in last month all was ok. Tomorrow morning I'll get the boat over to the dock and do the raw water hose and garden hose in a bucket routine and see if that works. My experiance tells me that the pump should be self priming though. The pump is about 10" above the water line.
