|It looks like the heater is leaking heated water out into my boat. Anyone have any suggestions as to a quick fix? If not I understand I could take out the heated water line coming from the engine and scrap the heater all together, but I'm not quite sure as how to shut off the flow. |
By the way the boat is a 2005 Tige 20v.

|You should be able to get plugs for the block. Failing that you can cut the hoses and join them together. Use a piece of pipe to join them and crank some hose clamps onto it, shouldn't leak. |
A third way is just to find bolts that fit the hoses and screw them in. We use that as a temp fix for plugging fuel lines etc sometimes.
Quick fix rip out the core and see if you can get it welded at a radiator shop.

|Go to home depot, buy two 1/2 inch shut off ball valves and four 1/2 inch to 5/8 inch hose barbs. Cut the hose by the engine and splice those in. VERY EASY to do. |
Don't mess around with plugging the engine, that will be a lot of work in tight quarters.
|i cut a half inch copper pipe spliced it then went to autozone 30 bucks for new coil|

|Todd that is true - I forgot the motor is the other way around in a V drive.|
