    Sounds like the impeller is worn out.
    Not that big a job.

    I thought the same, i'm new to boats, this would happen to be my first, do i'm not to familiar with the outboard, I do know it is pushing water through the impeller though.

    Classic symptoms of an old impeller with broken / missing vanes and vanes that have taken a " set " with time. Impellers should be replaced about every 3 years !
