    Thru Hull Exhaust Water Leak...help pls

    I would loosen the bolts (screws) on the fixture and the clamps, pull it out a bit. Clean off the hull and exhaust fitting. Reseal it using 3m 5200 or 4200. .

    Battery dead after 4 weeks non use

    Simple answer after all this is YES, you have to turn it off. Mine sits for weeks and it still starts because the master is OFF. .

    Running Mercruiser Out of Water

    Running the motor with out water not good, but its a 50/50 chance it might be good. Lower it back into the water and start it. Let it warm up and run for 5-10 minutes. If it stays at your normal engine temp, you should be ok. If it starts running warmer than normal, You'll need to have the impeller changed. .
