Thanks Guys for the advice.....I have owned a boat pretty much all my life but am new to fishing the big water. Never dealt with a algae problem. Was not sure about it causing damage. Going out Sun so I will watch it closely and flush the motor when I get home.
Wow, changing viscosity that much just shows how thick that crap really is! Its strange the fish even stay in it at all. Heck, for trolling the resistance on your lines would be much higher and your lures probably wouldn't go down as far.
I wonder if the stuff could start "cooking" to the inside of the water jacket where it contacts the hot surfaces. That could definitely hurt the heat exchange, too.
