I don’t own a KK. I do know that on some boats if you leave the cross-connect line open fuel can follow a small list. So say you were both on one side of the boat creating a very small list. Fuel...

My engine has 3.5 gallons of oil per engine, so smaller than yours. However, if it is something that you keep on 24/7 while at the dock, the heat will radiate through the engine quite nicely. That...

My knowledge of engines pretty much ends with knowing how to start and stop them. FWIW, I put an oil pan heater on my Cummins 5.9L engine a couple years ago. I didn't have any starting or smoking...
