HI Louis

Has the motor always done this or is this a recent problem?
I once had a similar problem on one of my boats.
I bought the boat and installed an older yammie on the back which kept over heating. I bought a newer motor and ended up with the same problem.
Eventually figured out that my motor was sitting ever so slightly too deep, which created "dirty water" or air bubbles around the intake.
I lifted the motor 20mm and have never had the problem since.
