Risers are just an upward turn in the eshaust usually containing the mixer on a wet exhaust system. They are to prevent water being sucked up into the engine. I will try to post a picture of one of my risers. If you have a dry stack exhaust with a keel cooler they would not be necessary.

Don, I checked the gensets and they both have risers. The mains do have dry stack so that makes sense that they don't have them. The exhaust is pretty loud, thought maybe it was something to dampen the noise. When insulated and covered up I hope its not going to be so loud.

Marty, the keel cooler is the heat exchanger.

Next week we will finish plumbing the port engine and work on the steering. I will let the port engine run for about 30 minutes tied to the pier before we embark on our maiden voyage. We will run about 3-4 miles and come back, hell maybe I'll go back and forth. Very exiting times in the build.

Worked on the steering, when the fire burned through the floor it cooked a steering rod and the cabin fell on it damaging it beyond repair. I bought some steel bar and two u joints and voila,

And if that does not work, Heat and Beat!!

Kudos on getting it fired up. Nice "stack talk". Noise from the engine itself will nearly go away when you get the hatches down.

Motor sounds good.

RT, your video hadn't loaded when I first looked. There was just a blank post, hence my jab.

How could I have doubted you...my bad!
