I have an older boat ( 2002 Calabria Pro-V ). Going to spend the weekend at a local lake for fathers day, lots of riding hopefully. Anyways, while checking out the boat this weekend ( checking fluids and belts and stuff ) I decided to take off the serpent belt and check all my pulleys. All seemed to be fine with the exception of the water pump, and it might be ok too just leads to my question. How hard should it be to turn that pulley? I know it prob shouldn't free spin since the impeller is behind there, but it seems REALLY hard to spin. Just curious, am I being paranoid? Boat has never left me stranded. Thanks for any advice.

It's pretty hard to spin. I have a brand new water pump and it take some effort to get it to turn. It the rubber impeller that's dry and sticking to the housing. I think it would be easier when wet.

If you're talking about the seawater pump, yes it will be quite difficult to turn by hand with a dry impeller.

Hopefully you change that thing at least every other year. Recommend every 100hrs or every 2yrs. I change mine every year no matter what...but I usually put on 100hrs anyway per summer.
Last thing you want to happen is to overheat cause you didnt replace a part that cost $40 and takes 1hr labor.
