I think there's one big port on the bottom, I'll tape over that to get more water coming out the side intake ports.


You can de barnacle the front port easily with a length of threaded rod or similar but the side ports are a much harder proposition. I have an SD 40 saildrive apart for new seals and diaphragm and the side port waterway had barnies all the way up. What was more interesting was what I found when I split the leg, a sheet of thin plastic had made it to the joint between upper and lower units. Click image for larger version

Without getting into a lengthy and detailed response...boatyard operations and laws in the Bahamas are in a totally different world than what you experience in the USA. Comparing to the USA is night and day.
