Recently purchased a new boat and not familiar with inboard engine and out drive.

Couple questions. 1st question. I recently bought a 1985 aero craft with Mercruiser 170. Should their be water in the bottom of the engine compartment after being ran in the lake. 2nd question. The dash has a series of switches. The 1 says blower. It had a blown fuse and as soon as I put a new one in it blows. I think it's the blower to removes fumes from the engine compartment. I'm not sure of the location and if it's usually the motor or wiring. I'm only use to a little 12' with a 9hp out board. Any advice will be highly appreciated.


Thanks Steve.
