impeller issues

changed it back in June, hadnt been changed in a year or 2 according to the PO -- it had quite a bit of 'trash' from it and we had to pick it all out but are certain we got it all, the new run has run fine

until the other day, it appears as though it needs replacing, will pull in the next day or two to make sure

the boat did run over a shoal, could I have sucked up, sand and mud trying to unstick her and that created havoc with the impeller?

we are freshwater sailors and new (obviously HA!) so I'm looking for advice here

it was not throwing out as much water as normal is why i suspect the impeller is the issure

thanks guys as always
