So after a pleasant cruise on Lake Union last night I decided to see how the boat handled using only one engine. I fired up the post side and set off at 6 knots. Well when I was getting near the dock...

I will get the props and bonding system checked out. The zinc on the boat when I took it out of the water for my survey last year were pretty much gone. I replaced them before dropping it back in the...

My surveyor didn't seem to think it was unusual for (probably 1987 original) props to need replacing due to galvanic action. But what trade would I need to engage to have my bonding system tested?...

I don't know FlyWright. I'll have to look. I thought it would be more of an electronic shut off rather than fuel because it when they shut off it's like turning off a light switch. Instant.

People do say it's a jolly hoot! The wetter, colder, the nastier the better for them. They are boating masochists. But if you want to find them, look on the sailboat forums.

Coolant - How often do you top up?

Hello All,

Still new to these big engines (big to me).

1. How frequently to you check coolant level?
2. How frequently do you need to top up and how much at a time?
