Re: destroyed impeller
someone needs to design a raw water sea valve that has a circuit interrupt to the starter switch. Glad you didn't have more damage then that Ron!
Not a good idea I don't think. There are times you want the intake closed when starting - with it open and prolonged cranking you could hydrolock the engine.
