no problem

If it really was only just ten seconds, that smoke was just the exhaust. The only thing it might have hurt would be the impeller but I doubt that would happen unless you ran for a much longer period...

Thanks for tossing this idea in the ring. Ive looked at most of the mid tier boats in the 25-27 range they all have pros and cons but for us the sea hunt is the most enticing right now.

Varies between 8-12lbs based on current and line diameter. Just use what you can to keep the line fairly straight up and down. A lot of it is having someone on the helm that knows what they are doing...
