It has to be a bearing beginning to seize up. Replace it, it will fail when you need it most.

It hasn't ran in awhile, 6 months, bought the boat month ago, turn it on it screams, someone told me it's dry, pour a little water on it and it'll quiet down? A livewell pump does the same but not as loud and other livewell pump is quiet.

But, the noise is NOT normal and does indicate something is failing. My advice is to replace it while it is NOT causing you a flooding problem on the lake; it's a preventive maintenance item!!

Good luck!

Since you never know when you will REALLY need the bilge pump, I would just go ahead and replace it. Take a look at it as many of them have replaceable cartridges instead of having to replace the complete pump. As the other person recommended, I would pump some water through the livewell pump to see if quiets down.
