Verado 300: coil moisture damage
Have had my boat for almost a year now. Recently had engine issue which was the result of a damaged coil due to moisture. After close inspection when up on the go a lot of water is funnelled from the pontoons onto the motor high enough and under pressure to get past the cover and wet the inside motor area. The result is the lowest coil has corroded. Any advice would very appreciated.
The motor mount has a number of holes left to allow it to be raised...thinking this may help. Currently on second lowest mount hole.
300 hp Mercury Verado
Would lifting the motor up the mount say 2 holes help with top end performance aswell.
At this stage it looks like some sort of deflector would be the only way to stop the water hitting the motor so high.
Newbie so bare with me. Thanks
