If there was an exhaust leak AND halon went off, it was not a minor leak. Not uncommon for Yanmar turbo outlet (exhaust side) to break at v-band clamp and then you have a massive exhaust leak.

The heat and soot can really trash the engine room and components. Be very careful before buying this boat. Get a good surveyor and/or engine guy to go over that engine room very carefully.

Like Ski and others have said, be very careful.

Sea Trial, Short Haul and Survey

Hi Everyone!
Thank you for all of your posts!
Had the Short haul at C & D Marine Services Copiague, NY.
They have been doing all the maintenance on the boat for the last 7+ years.
TERRIFIC OUTFIT! I canít say enough about them. Indeed it was a snapped hose clamp that caused the issue, and due to itís close proximity to the fire suppression system sensor, Haylon was deployed. The engine compartment was cleaned and in better shape than at our first viewing of the boat. They treated us like family.

Met the Owner and the Surveyor, JIM DIAS of Connecticut on Friday morning.
Happily the Broker was busy and did not attend!
Jim was just Top Notch! He was very thorough, direct, and very good at sharing his vast knowledge. His agility moving through and around the boat was amazing. IF YOU NEED A GREAT SURVEYOR IN CT, NY, RI,MA,NH,ME. HE IS YOUR GUY!

Sea trial occurred Saturday due to remnants of Hurricane Michael blowing through Friday. The boat performed really well and Jim Dias was all smiles after emerging from the engine compartment. A short list of a few suggested improvements was discussed, but the consensus was that we will proceed with the purchase pending the oil sample study.

I canít wait to get her cleaned, shiny and to add a well needed Womanís Touch to make her our own.

Thanks to All!
We will keep you informed, your input is greatly appreciated
Patti & Russ

Mr./Ms. P27. We also used Jim for TWO of our surveys. As you noted, top notch guy. First boat he did for us failed miserably and second was the one we bought. We flew him into FL to do the second because we were SO impressed with his knowledge and manner. WELL worth both the survey fee and the cost of the flight.
HIGHLY recommended!!!
