Old Dan, I do too, the guy who started this. I was simply bored sitting in this damn marina and thought I would be devilish for a moment. We could all use a bit of levity at the moment, don't you think?

I disagree, I believe we all can learn something by reviewing these common topics, how else would I learn of Ted’s fantastic idea of the fllter. Wish I knew that a few boats back when I had 3208 that eat impellers and they were a bitch to find.

True enough, but a simple search will reveal many previous threads on this topic. Guys, I am so sorry for having started another world war without end.

Baker, your baby looks lonely at that yard. Is it partially closed, or mostly that slow at this time of year?

They are only running the lift on Mondays and Fridays. This was taken on a Saturday....after the exodus on Friday and before the re-infiltration on Monday. I just got back from there and the yard is fairly full.

Baker. We have been dry since Ft Pierce and about another few weeks, long story. At least you have Flor de Cana to drown yours and Wendy’s sorrows. Hang in there brother.

Two other tired subject, "How to choose a first trawler.", and 1 or 2 engines.

You ask those questions and you are basically asking us, how to spend your money.
There are threads that address the subjects. No need to start new threads on the same tired subjects.

Old Dan. Which reminds me to think that this is April 15, and the government is spending our money.

Change impellers like doing Taxes, (every year.)
Although there is a three month extension allowed this year. No interest or penalties. Yea!

Anything I said about that would be considered political. So I will just (mumble mumble), and go sit it the corner before I am sent there.

My rubber impeller pump pumps antifreeze/coolant. It is the original raw water pump but on my engine it pumps antifreeze/coolant through the keel cooler and engine. It is a hassle to check the impeller because of this. Not only because of opening the coolant system and cooling fluid loss/refilling but because the whole pump has to unmount to get at the cover plate. I have been checking it once a year or so and each time it all looks pristine but I replace it anyway.

Our Camano came this way. Strainer is after the pump so any bits of impeller that may break off would be caught by the strainer. But no strainer before the pump.
