We plan on traveling up the Bay for a short weeks trip with stops in Solomons and Annapolis MD.
We are attending an open house for OR and hope to meet up with some friends, Ray and Susan Cope.
However there were a bunch of maintenance things to get done before heading out, 53 to be exact, Wheelhouse technologies helps me keep tabs on the scheduled maintenance. So for the past week I have been earning my keep and doing the list.
The sea water is pumped from a sea chest through a Groco 3000 sea strainer to a water pump and into the exchanger. Then out the boat. My engines run a bit cooler than most diesels, I average about 165 and at WOT a slight increase to 170 or so.
There a total of two on each engine
There are a total of 2 3000, one 1500 and 3 1200. Each one to be opened and the wire basket removed and cleaned and replaced.
The past few days I changed 7 racor fuel filters, you can see then as the 6 of them if you look closely, they are tall and white.
Almost all of the chores are done and tomorrow is general clean up and provisioning. We are looking forward to a fun trip.
