I was watching the engines on the cameras several months back when I noticed a tube hanging off the port engine near the air filter. A visit below verified that a breather tube had worked loose. I couldn't find one short section of hose at the time, but my spares had a 90 degree segment that worked perfectly. I reconnected the breather and continued. There was no mess and no harm done. The original section of hose turned up at the next engine service when the drip pan diapers were changed.

If I had not used the cameras, I might have missed the loose breather tube. I also use them to monitor for oil and fuel leaks on the white diapers.
My boat is my ark. It's my mobile treehouse and my floating fishing cabin. It's my retreat and my respite. Everyday I thank God I have a boat! -Al
