Had an engine overheat in the middle of "The Race" in LI Sound. Recalibrated the AP to steer with one engine running than went below and disassembled the entire cooling system to find the problem. Of course it had to be the starboard engine so I had to lean over and around a very hot engine! Turns out of all things it was the two year old thermostat went bad! Well at least now I've taken a good look at the coolers, lines, impeller, hoses, strainer, clamps, thermostat, antifreeze, etc!!! Sometimes it's really nice to have twins.

Mark,

It's always the starboard engine.I had my lift pump go out mid channel and another time my raw water pump's drive connection fail. Always Starboard and over it when it's hot. I carry a small rug below just for that.

For me its always the port engine. The raw water pump is outboard against the fuel tanks. Of course its the only one that has failed twice. The fuel injector pump is just above it and of course it has had two leaks that you need a mirror to identify and get a wrench on. Damn murphy

Oh, I totally understand. I've never boated in the NE and didn't know sea states there. I hate beam seas that go on forever and 26 hours is forever.

Thanks from him! I did, thanks for asking. It's a bit of a story and I'm going to post in a new thread called white exhaust smoke.

Have a good trip Daddyo. I hope we get some of the superb 'underway' photos like we did on the trip North!

This is a new night running system that I had a local welder fabricate for me. I will run the wires internally after we tweek the system.
