Thumbs down Re: Globe Blue Run Dry impellers

I had a blue Globe in our Bukh at one time. It was put in at the beginning of one season, removed for the winter lay-up, and replaced at the start of the next season. It then failed to draw in water, and I replaced it with a basic rubber type impeller.

It had never been run dry, and I have never fitted one since.

Not impressed with performance.

I now have a VP2003 (different boat) with a Johnson pump and impeller - and no problems.
