I have an 08 360 express with the same exact problem. Gen works fine unless on a plane in which it overheats after about 10 minutes. Mine is in freshwater, flat conditions still cause overheating when on a plane. I’ve had it serviced and still can’t find the problem.

What power setup are you running on yours. We just had a repower and looking to see if that could cause the pickup to come out of the water as we are moving faster and trimmed differently.

Next time you are out, try trimming your engines down while planing to force the bow down more than usual and see if that puts water to the genny. If it does then moving the pickup aft is necessary. Before you go to that extreme, make sure though that there is nothing forward of the existing pickup that could cause turbulence like a head discharge or fishbox discharge.
