Thanks Psneeld. Interesting, so it has a return line, but doesn't return much fuel. Somehow, the lift pump delivers just the amount of fuel that the injection pump uses?

Hell Gate is in the East River in New York City. Currents in both directions (tidal) of 5 knots or so max. Swirling, used to be full of rocks, thousands of shipwrecks and tons of gold at the bottom.

Tell me more about that Torqueedo, please. Are the manufacturer's range claims accurate - 10 hours at slow speed? How much does your dinghy weigh?

The website claims the 12 volt unit is 8,000 BTU; can't say if that's accurate.

It sounds like you have a lot of options, but I kind of like putting film on the windows and ducting the cabin air...

Interesting. I never knew there were 12 volt (and 24 volt) ac systems. This company seems to have a good quality item, at least from their description: 12voltac.com

They draw 40 amps or so,...

Do you have a link to that unit, or a brand name? It looks interesting, but sounds like a rather complex thing to install.

If it's running at 1,800 rpm, the governeor is working fine. 7 volts sounds a lot like a bad capacitor, assuming you have no elecronic voltage regulator. Capacitors are cheap and easy to replace,...

Because of engine problems, or structural problems in the engine room, or something else?

The boat isn't far from me, so I will probably go have a look.
