I was wondering if stomp grates (extra grating) restrict the intake of water to the pump and possibly result in a loss of power? My work boat is a 20 ft Marion with a 4.3 liter v-6 and a center console. It's a great boat for hauling gear, but my memory tells me it used to have a little more power before the stomp grate was installed. I use the boat so little, except for the 1,200 miles logged last week (ugh!), that I just can't remember what the power used to be like. Thanks.
