Glad to hear your enthusiasm and love of the boat are still strong after enduring the setbacks - or simply discovering the typical boat-owner challenges. Stay the course.

Are you buying all new injectors or having yours serviced/rebuilt?
Either way, I hope it all works out well for you to have a safe journey home.

I have been thinking about having my injectors serviced. At 3500 hours the surveyor suggested it as it would increase efficiency and probably reduce engine smoke. But I'm not sure if the injector service cost would get paid for with the fuel savings we would receive when doing "The Loop" next year.

I also find that the more time I spend on our Prairie 36, regardless if it's a project day or a fun day the more I fall in love with her as well.
