Default RE: plug

No, not normally. But you can kill the engine if it is still running full blast and sucks in water. Water does not compress like air...

The plug is bad if it don't glow, if you race you may want to use a new plug each race day / weekend. If your boat goes under and gets water in the engine, just flood a little bit to force water out , start and run a bit and it will flush all the water out.

Default RE: plug

plug should be fine. Ive run all day on the same plug with a couple dunks. Make sure you get that thing fired up as soon as you get the water out and let it run to get whats left out, then oil after end of day like usual.
