The intake was blocked on the outside of the boat?

Or was the internal strainer totally clogged?

Is there a lot of eel grass in your waters?

Good point about being there to monitor the operation.

In both cases the intake was clogged, once at the tru-hull and once at the strainer.* There's a lot of plastic in the water and bits of sea weed/debris.* The thru-hull is a 1" mushroom with no screen or scoop.
