    The stringer 800 has the water impeller in the outdrive up under the lower gearbox. You need to get a manual and drop the gearbox.

    I cant say for sure possibly the in hull pickup is for a fish well. I suppose it is possible it has a raw water pump on the crank without any good pics we can just speculate how it is setup.
