I noticed after my 8 HP outboard has not been used for a week or 2 the water stream out the back sometimes does not flow, only dribbles. I use it in saltwater but do I need to flush it each time or is there something else going on?

It could be a bad Impeller. They should be changed each year if you use your engine a lot. They have been known last for years, but you know what they say about preventative maintanence! You might try running a pipe cleaner up the tube to make sure it's not just pluged up.

I'd sugest checking to see if you are getting debris in the intake...ie sand or seaweed. If it clears itself after awhile then that could be it or you could be getting corrosion in the lines.
