What happens when you stop to quick!

The following pictures were taken of a 225 hp outboard which was stopped to quickly. The water went up the exhaust into the engine! Not good













I'm glad it's not mine.

wow I thought that outboard engines would have been designed for things like stopping quick.

Hope his insurance pays out.

Up the exhaust? Really? I would have thought through the air intake more likely - but still difficult!

I expect he meant air intake, same thing happened to a friends BMW when he tried to drive it through a flooded road.

Can't see how it could be the air intake, the boat would've sunk first.

That looks like it hydraulic locked at speed.

Take it the engine is 'stripped for parts'. Can imagine labour and new parts to rebuild would be prohibitive.

+1

Would be interesting to see exactly how that could have happened if the engine was running to get water back past the exhaust valves etc, against the flow of the exhaust gasses?
