DonF, new welcome.

Sunchaser, well I borrowed one when I needed it, but yes, very useful tool to have, thanks.

Brooksi, I agree with that, and I do "warm up" procedure during cruising, not at the dock, at the dock only until I untie the lines. At the dock engine stays on at idle a bit longer (like 5 minutes) only at the end of cruising, until temperature start decreasing (until I secure the boat lines), then I switch it off and turn on the engine room blower.

Nidza - My compliments to you for the accurate description of engine issues. It was a long initial post, but it made the situation very clear.

It's nice to have a successful outcome which does not cost anything.

Nidza, IR guns are readily available on ebay here, hopefully there too. Inexpensive at $20 AUD, (= about 30 Euros).

AusCan, that would be professional deformation since I am an electronic engineer, probably. About the no cost successful outcome - priceless.

BruceK, yes, same here, just when I went through restoration/renovation process costs were all around and above my head, so every cent was important at that time. Many things that I could I have borrowed since I am not marine engineer. Now, when everything is finished, I can afford such useful toys of interest .

Thanks everyone once more!
