Not sure what you meant by this (always hard to figure these things out in forums unless you have a long history with a person):
"...not enough owner time to really follow these piddling things along."
We cruise at least a minimum of two months each year, including a five month trip to Alaska one summer, completed several circumnavigations of Vancouver Island, and made many trips in the Broughtons, Desolation, to Rupert, Kitimat, etc. We have been watching this issue closely over the past several years, trying to figure it out. It really concerns me as does any deviation from normal parameters in our engine room.
Your assistance is greatly appreciated as is the help from everyone else!
