Marin, The month before that I bought new heat exchangers, new hoses, new belts, coolant and thermostats. Everything was new. I had made two trips with the new setup and noted the temps were a steady 180 continuously after attaining cruising speed. I have a three mile 5 Kt harbor cruise before the outer harbor and then it's no speed limit to the breakwall and the ocean.

I always watch my temps. I also have new raw water pumps and I service them annually. My wet elbows I change every seven or eight years too. I keep a maintenance schedule and I know my boat and my engines.

Thank you.
