Shortman is on a distinguished road
Also if checking raw water intake, check line before strainer. This past summer I had eel grass clogging the intake before the strainer as it had caught on the lip of the hose elbow. Over heating smoke was white/gray not black. Also my engine & therefore inlet hose is smaller (3/4") than yours is likely to be.
