I am new to boating and have bought a boat that was rebuilt and sat for just over a year winterized. I put it in the water for the first time last weekend. It ran rough and feel needs a tuneup. Me and my family sat in the water for about an hour just enjoying the day. I tried to start motor it ran really rough, I noticed that the engine compartment was full of water right up to under the motor.
I suspect its a seal leak on the outdrive. Is this something that can be done by a mechanic? Does anyone know where I can get the kit to repair this problem?
Your assistance would be appreciated.
